Orchards.- B[eale] (J[ohn]) Herefordshire Orchards, A Pattern for all England, Written in an Epistolary Address to Samuel Hartlib Esq., first edition, title with woodcut ornament, title lightly browned, 20th century calf, spine faded, corners scuffed, [Henrey p.230; Fussell pp.49-50; Wing 1558], 8vo, Printed by Roger Daniel, 1657.

⁂ A rare little work. We can trace only 3 other copies at auction in the last 25 years and ESTC lists only 6 copies (2 in the Bodleian and only 1 in the United States). Beale was chaplain to Charles II. The work is much influenced by Hartlib.
