NOURSE, Timothy. Campania Foelix. New York and London: Garland Publishing Inc., 1982. A facsimile of the 1700 edition printed for T. Bennet. Pp. (14),[1]-[366],(6) of facsimile ads,(10). 8vo, green cloth with gilt series device to front board and gilt lettering to spine. Volume 7 in The English Landscape Garden series: Examples of the important literature of the English landscape garden movement together with some earlier garden books. Edited with introductory notes by John Dixon Hunt. "Timothy Nourse (d. 1699) was an Oxford man noted for his preaching; he converted to Roman Catholicism in 1673 and was deprived of his fellowship, whereupon he retired to the country.He published on philosophical and theological matters. 'Campania Foelix' concerns the whole spectrum of a gentleman's country existence. Its sectionson husbandry deal with all sorts of estate problems, and these are followedby essays on the work of justices of the peace, on inns and alehouses, onservants and labourers, and on the poor. Two final essays deal with Londonfuel and 'Of a Country House' (pp. 297-344); this last is a most valuable instance of late seventeenth-century bias against French gardening styles and strong preference instead of Italianate modes, which strongly supports the idea that the early English landscapists looked to Italian precedents andrelied on previous Italianate taste like Nourse's in their campaign for new kinds of garden design." - from the preface.
