"In this wonderfully illustrated book, including 100 paintings and
100 photographs, Barrie Juniper and David Mabberley detail the
cultural history of his quintessential English fruit... there is so
much to learn that you will never look at your orchard with the
same blinkered eyes again. This is the ultimate accessible academic
apple volume."-- "The Field"
"This is a long and thoughtful book by renowned botanical experts, which considers both the geographical history of the apple and its influence on human civilisation through the eras... Richly illustrated throughout, this is a comprehensive and thoughtful tome, which will delight anyone who enjoys the more in-depth approach."-- "The English Garden"
