This beautiful copper plate engraving is from John Evelyn's Sylva, or A Discourse of Forest-Trees. It was published in London for the Royal Society in 1776 as an encouragement to landowners to plant trees to provide timber for England's burgeoning navy. The work was a success from the start. Its publication gave a great stimulus to planting in Britain and no other work on arboriculture exerted a greater influence on forestry in England than Evelyn's Sylva.

This print is an authentic antique, not a reproduction and is in excellent condition. The engraving is printed on chain-linked cotton rich paper with strong plate marks and beautiful hand colouring.
