Publisher Comments:

A stunning facsimile edition of this classic 18th Century work on apple and pear tree cultivation and taxonomyPomology is a strand of botany specializing in the study of types and varieties of fruit, together with their description and classification. In 1758, the Dutch scientist and mathematician Johann Hermann Knoop produced an extensive work with descriptions and illustrations of the best varieties of endangered apples and pears in Holland, Germany, France, England, and other countries, which was the reason why they were grown.Two years later, in 1760, his work was translated into German, and soon began to enjoy growing popularity owing to the great interest the cultivation of new varieties aroused. In 1766, Johann Michael Seligmann updated his work and new illustrations were added in the most vibrant colors. This sequel to Pomologia was complemented with several varieties of cherries and plums which are included in this facsimile.Text in English, French, Italian & German
