The New Sylva: A Discourse of Forest and Orchard Trees for the Twenty-First Century - Gabriel Hemery,Sarah Simblet
In 1664, the horticulturist and diarist John Evelyn wrote Sylva, the first comprehensive study of British trees. It was also the world's earliest forestry book, and the first book ever published by the Royal Society.
Evelyn's elegant prose has a lot to tell us today, but the world has changed dramatically since his day. From oak to apple, The New Sylva describes and illustrates the most important species of tree that bring our modern landscape to life.
