About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1953, this book examines the relations between France and England in the second half of the eighteenth century in the sphere of agricultural literature. The text shows how the French 'Agronomes' of the period were heavily influenced by their appreciation of developments in the English agricultural revolution, broadening the investigation of a field opened up by Friedrich Wolters in a section of his Agrarzustande und Agrarprobleme in Frankreich von 1700 bis 1790 (1905). Illustrative figures and a detailed bibliography are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in agricultural history, eighteenth-century history and economic history.
