Divided into three sections, the present edition deals with the planting and cultivation of mulberry trees, the cultivation of silkworms, and the method of spinning silk. Although published anonymously, the second treatise is attributed to ‘J.F.T.’ The three works were originally published at the expense of the King of Prussia and were distributed locally. The present collected edition, authorized by him, was published by the orphanage at Züllichau (Sulechów in present-day Poland) in order to benefit a wider audience.
