mollusque commented on the word aphernousli
Can anyone offer an etymology for this word?

The aphernousli, or arkennousli of Switzerland, Trent, Carniola, & c. might probably thrive to great advantage in our bleak, barren, rocky, mountainous tracts of land . . . .
--Walter Harte, 1764, Essays on Husbandry, p. 102
We agree with Mr. Whitley in deeming the Pinus Cembra, or aphernousli as it is called (we know not the meaning), a tree of great beauty . . . .
--The Gardener's Magazine 9(45): 475 (1833)
