A masterpiece of botanical art and the most comprehensive study of the apples and pears grown in Britain ever published. The Herefordshire Pomona is the most comprehensive study of the apples and pears grown in Britain ever published, with over 430 different varieties all beautifully illustrated. Every fruit is also discussed in an erudite and fascinating text whose rich collection of stories supporting its descriptions takes us from precise taxonomy into the colourful byways of English rural life. This edition, limited to 980 copies, is the first ever produced since the exceedingly rare original printing from the late 1880s. Winner of the British Book Design and Production Awards in the category of Scholarly, Academic and Reference Books. What is immediately and strikingly apparent is that The Herefordshire Pomona is a book of great beauty. The images of apples and pears have such vitality, such lustre, they could almost be picked from the page. The plates in the original edition are lauded as masterpieces of chromolithography and are rendered here with great fidelity by modern printing methods.
