[From The Gardener's magazine 1829, p. 372:] The Nursery of Prevost fils is the finest in Rouen. M. Prevost, whose father was proprietor of the same grounds, has had a regular college education, is a scientific botanist....we are not aware, that there is any nurseryman who, as a cultivated man, can be compared with him in England, with the exception of George Loddiges, and we only know of M. Vilmorin in France.

[From Revue Horticole, July 1832, p. 82:] M. Prevost fils, fleuriste, au Palais Royal, Galerie de Chartres, nos. 13 et 14, et Grande-Rue, no. 23, aux Près-Saint-Gervais.

[From The Old Rose Adventurer, by Brent Dickerson, 1999, p. 42:]
Prévost appears to have first gotten involved with roses ca. 1811.

[From Catalogue des Rosiers cultivés au Jardin du Luxembourg, by Vincent Derkenne, 2012, p. 81-82:] Nicolas-Joseph Prévost (1787-1855), dit Prévost fils, professeur d'horticulture et de botanique à Rouen, vice-président fondateur de la Société d'horticulture de Seine-Inférieure, puis président du Cercle pratique d'horticulture du même département, pépiniériste renommé, obtenteur, installé au 68, rue du Champ-des-Oiseaux, à Bois-Guillaume près de Rouen. Il publia le catalogue de ses productions de rosiers en 1829; supplément en 1830, Nicétas Périaux jeune, Rouen. Il y décrit les 1400 rosiers qu'il cultive. Écrit par un botaniste, ce catalogue reste une référence de nos jours.
