John Evelyn
Title Page

Evelyn's work, on the pollution of the air in London, is one of the earliest classics of ecology. Evelyn suggested two remedies: that certain trades be removed several miles outside London, and that a belt of fragrant trees and shrubs be planted around the city limits. His efforts at legislation, however, failed. This copy is from the Evelyn family library.
