Abstract
  • IE TCD MS 1706/6 is a manuscript folio, verso blank, of a planting plan for a tulip bed in the garden of the Fagel House in the Hague. Made on 16 October 1718 this plan may have been influenced by Jean de Vivier’s work, ‘Le Jardin de Hollande’, a manual giving advice on gardening in the French style, with a chapter on the cultivation of tulips: see Chapter IX. Le Jardin de Hollande et des pays-bas planté et garni de tulipes suivant la maniere des Francois. (Leiden, 1714). Species of tulip such as the Bizarden (yellow ground with brown or other coloured markings) are described in this manual.
