Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau - Traité des Arbres Fruitiers Tome II
Bibliographic InformationBibliographic Information

Volume I | Volume II

Around 1750, Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau showed the manuscript and illustrations for Traité des Arbres Fruitiers to René Le Berryais (1722-1807). The work consisted of research and writing started after the publication of Anatomie de la Poire in 1730 and 1731. Accompanying the text was the artwork of Claude Aubriet (c. 1665-1742) and Ma(g)deleine Basseporte (1701-1780), both of whom Duhamel hired to illustrate the 16 different fruit species and multiple cultivars. Without financial backing, this work would not have progressed beyond the preliminary stage.
