Gallesio: Traite du citrus, 1811

   In the introduction to his 1811 treatise on the history and varieties of citron, lemon, and sweet and sour orange, Georges Gallesio says this about citrus trees: “Of all the plants spread by Nature upon the surface of the globe, there are none more beautiful than those we know under the names of citron, lemon and orange trees, …These charming trees are both useful and ornamental. No others equal them in beauty of leaf, delightful odor of flowers, or splendor and taste of fruit. No other plant supplies delicious confections, agreeable seasonings, perfumes, essences, syrups, and the valuable acid so useful to colorers.”
