Description

This Tiny Folio presents, in modern taxonomic order, all 277 of the hand-coloured plates from Francois-Andre Michaux's classic North American Sylva, as well as the supplemental volumes by Thomas Nuttall. These masterworks of 19th-century botanical illustration - by such artists as Pierre-Joseph Redoute 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.
