Systema Horti - culturae or The art of gardening by John Worlidge published 1677
'Systema Horti-culturae' is a major text for the relation of English gardening to horticulture and the economy of country estates. Worlidge is much concerned with the English climate, soil, and conditions in his discussions of estate management. But he also pays serious attention to garden design — advising on grottoes, statues, walks, arbours, and so forth — and urges both the large landowner and 'the honest and plain Countryman' to improve 'his Ville'. 
this copy is showing its age and is somewhat worn - well used for 336 years - published during the reign of King Charles II
