Reader's note

Enjoy another piece of classic literary history with this rare, vintage book, The Observer’s Book of Trees. This book for the pocket provides a comprehensive guide to 74 species of trees most commonly found in the woods, parks and hedgerows of the British Isles. Broadleaved trees are shown in both summer foliage and leafless winter outline, together with drawings in colour of twigs, flowers, fruits and individual leaves. Evergreen conifers are represented by whole-tree paintings, with details of foliage sprays, flowers and cones. Line drawings show to name seedlings of sixteen common kinds, and also a range of leafless broadleaved trees by their winter twigs. Photographs showing bar characters make it easy to identify many trees from their trunks alone. The text relates the progress of each tree through its seasonal changes of spring budding, summer foliage and autumn colour, together with its pattern on flowering and fruiting. Uses of wood and maximum sizes, by height and girth, are given for each kind. There is an account of each tree’s history, whether native or introduced, and its value for ornament or forest timber production. Described fully, and interestingly portrayed with 51 colour illustrations and 58 half-tone photographs. Begin or add to your classic Observer books collection now with this wonderful title.
