The Apple Book


First published in 1988 as The English Apple this revised and updated edition is one of the best for apple identification in the UK - includes an additional 22 varieties. In 144 detailed watercolours Sanders shows the apples together with their blossom, twig and leaf and has written a detailed description recording their shape, colour, aroma, flavour and season as well as something of the history of each variety. Marginal line drawings in cross-section complete a comprehensive guide to identification. The book's usefulness is enhanced by a practical essay on apple growing by Harry Baker, fruit officer for many years at the Royal Horticultural Society and one of Britain's foremost authorities on apple growing.

H/back. 168 pp. 400 col. ill. 150 line drawings.
