6. Russian Gardening, as a Science, and the Authors it has produced 480. We know of no original Russian author on gardening. There is a poem, On Gardens, by Samboursky, translated into the French language by Masson de Blamont: there is also a poem on glass, by the Russian poet Lomonosow, which, as containing an eulogium on hothouses, may be considered as belonging to this subject. Some translations have been published in German; and various papers on botanical, physiological, and agricultural subjects appear from time to time in the Transactions of the Imperial Economical Society.
