First English edition, edited and expanded by John Mills – his first agricultural publication. Among the most prolific and respected agricultural authors of the second half of the eighteenth century, John Mills (c. 1717–1786) is first recorded in 1743 in Paris, working on a French edition of Chambers’s Cyclopedia; his first publication did not appear, however, until 1759, with the Treatise of Husbandry derived from the Traité de la culture des terres (1750, and expanded second edition 1753-1762), a treatise by the botanist Duhamel du Monceau (1700–1782) which was in turn based on the writings of Tull.
