Preface

“I never had any other desire so strong, and so like to Covetousness, as that one which I have had always that I might be Master at last of a small house and large Garden, with very moderate conveniences joyned to them, and there dedicate the remainder of my life only to the culture of them, and study of Nature."

Abraham Cowley to John Evelyn.
