Six plates from 'One of the finest and rarest books on fruit' (Dunthorne p.192). This series takes its title from Duhamel's Traité of 1768, it is an independent work and was intended as Poiteau and Turpin's homage to the earlier work. A team of over twenty engravers was involved. The colour printing was by Langlois, the great French colour-printer who supervised much of Redouté's work.
