Description


A miniature volume of exquisite botanical prints—the perfect gift for tree lovers.




This Tiny Folio presents, in modern taxonomic order, all 277 of the hand-colored plates from François-André Michaux’s classic North American Sylva, as well as the supplemental volumes by Thomas Nuttall. These masterworks of nineteenth-century botanical illustration—by such artists as Pierre-Joseph Redouté and Pancrace Bessa—represent the leaves, fruit, and flowers of American trees with wonderful grace and clarity. Published in cooperation with the New York Botanical Garden, The Trees of North America includes a preface and introduction describing how Michaux and Nuttall’s pioneering work came to be.
