We are delighted to offer a
selection of prints from Sylva,
or a Discourse of Forest Trees by John Evelyn,
published in 1786. This influential volume was
originally published in 1664 in response to the
destruction of forests in England's wooded estates after
the Interregnum. It inspired the land owners of the day
to engage in reforestation, which not only ensured a
steady supply of commercial timber for future
generations, but also helped conserve the natural beauty
of the English woodlands.
John Evelyn (1620-1706) was a life-long public servant and an avid gardener. He was well
known as a friend of royalty and as a learned man. John
lived during fascinating times, witnessing the Great
London Fire, the English Revolution & subsequent rule of
Oliver Cromwell, the Restoration, and the reign of
Charles II. Today he is remembered primarily for his
diary, a treasure trove of information on the life and
manners of 17th century England.
Each print is on a fine wove paper
that is still quite white, with strong plate marks and
no foxing. The recent hand coloring is superb, the work of a
professional English colorist. Each print
measures approximately 8 3/4 by 11 inches. There is no
descriptive text, but a copy of the original title page
accompanies each print. The photos are very
accurate, so please review carefully. All our prints are
authentic antique prints and guaranteed to be from the
date stated. These prints are about 230 years old.
