Le Berryais: Traite de lorangerie, 1788



  In his 4-volume set published in Caen and Paris between 1785 and 1788 titled Traite des jardins, ou le nouveau De La Quintinye, contenant la description et la culture, Rene Le Berryais describes the cultivation of fruit trees, house plants, ornamentals, and in the fourth (and present) volume, the orangery, the hot-house and the art of espalier. It is a more general treatment of tropical and subtropical exotic plants and gives detailed instructions and finely-executed illustrations on how to build the hothouses and lath houses necessary to cultivate the exotics including citrus.
