John Evelyn Sylva, Discourse of Forest Trees 1786

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.
