Publisher Comments:

Mountain Ash, Scarlet Oak, Box Elder: Each type of tree is its own work of art, distinguished in part by its leaves, which exist in an incredible array of shapes, colors, and sizes. This handsome album offers readers the pleasure of pressing the specimens they discover on their nature walks and notating the specifics of their encounters, while also providing a wealth of information about the world of trees. <BR>The essential collector's guide, "A Notebook of Trees</I> offers a lively telling of the botanical biography and surrounding legends and lore of thirty-five common and exotic species, all lushly illustrated in watercolor. To aid readers in identifying their samples, precisely detailed botanical drawings of leaves, flowers, fruits, and branches accompany the descriptions. Like its companion volume, "A Notebook of Flowers</I>, this herbarium includes vellum inserts in which to preserve leaves, and an elastic ribbon closure to secure the burgeoning pages. <BR>Budding naturalists can jot down observations in blank entry spaces and cross-reference their findings in indices of common and scientific names.

Synopsis:

In parks or forests, public or private gardens, in the countryside or lining city streets... at once universal and yet so different from each other, trees lift their stately branches above us at nearly every moment of our lives. Through a rich and informative text, this herbarium delineates the identifying characteristics of a number of the most important, decorative, and useful trees growing in the temperate zones, along with their uses, the meaning of their names, and their mythology. Botanical drawings, superb in their precision, allow us to easily recognize each tree, in its silhouette or in the details of its leaves, flowers, and fruit. Blank pages offer a place to store and display a dried and pressed leaf of each tree described, gleaned from the budding naturalist's exploratory walks, while transparent pockets at the end of the book let you enrich and extend your collection by adding specimens from other species.
