The Trees of North America: Michaux and Redoute's American Masterpiece

By Susan Fraser

A miniature volume of exquisite botanical prints 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.
