by Gabriel Hemery / Sarah Simblet

In 1664, the horticulturist and diarist John Evelyn wrote Sylva, the first comprehensive study of British trees.

Evelyn's elegant prose has a lot to tell us today, but the world has changed dramatically since his day. Now the authors have taken inspiration from the original work, and masterfully created a contemporary version - The New Sylva. The result is a fabulous resource that describes all of the most important species of tree that populate our landscape. Illustration type: B/W illustrations, 400pp. 2014
