A compendious, but more particular method, than has ever yet been published, for the raising Italian brocoli, Spanish cardoon, celeriac, fenochi, and other foreign kitchen vegetables; so as to make them dishes more generally used than hithero they have been. As also a more authentic account of the La Lucerne, St. Foyne, clover, and other grass seeds, for the improvement of land than is at present to be found in any books of husbandry, or gardening. Drawn up at the desire of several gentlemen, for the use of their bailiffs and gardeners in the country, where these particulars are not so well known. To which is added, the new, but very useful method of burning of clay, for the improvement of land; which may very well be placed amougst the greatest, cheapest, and most useful improvements in husbandry, that this, or any other age has produced. As also, an appendix, wherein is contained a further and full account of the La Lucerne, its perfections, imperfections, &c. and how it may be sown so as to answer its character, and promote its well growing in this soil. By S.S. Author of the practical fruit and kitchen gardener, &c.

Switzer, Stephen, 1682-1745.
