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.
