A Bruxelles, et se trouve à Paris, Chez Desaint & Saillant, 1762. 330 pp. 12mo. Contemporary marbled calf, spine gilt with raised bands, red edges, rear joint with some loss, lightly rubbed. INED 2659; Higgs 2666; not in Kress; not in Goldsmiths; Einaudi 3219 (Italian translation); Weulersse i, xxvii. Third, expanded and best edition. A treatise on 'artificial pastures' and other means to improve agriculture, originally published in 1756 as a volume of 124 pages only. In the present third edition the original essay is followed by two other treatises, of which the first deals with the culture of clover, and the second with the exportation of corn. Simon-Philibert la Salle de l'Etang (1700? -1765) here provides one of the earliest systematic plans for rotating food crops with "artificial" pastures, allowing tilled lands to rebuild nutrient reserves. In addition, the author advocates raising livestock for manure to fertilize dry and sterile lands. In order to facilitate his plan, he calls for the establishment of a national bureau of agriculture that would be responsible for record- keeping, distributing produce throughout the country in times of famine and regional crises, regulating foreign trade in agricultural products, and maintaining fair prices. La Salle de l'Etang was an official of the city of Reims and deputy at Paris and author of a popular 'Manuel d'agriculture'. His formula for a balanced partition of the soil between arable land and 'artifical pastures' was adopted by Quesnay in his famous article 'Grains' for the 'Encyclopedie'. - Old handwritten ownership's entry in blank lower margin of the title-page.
