Description

In The Book of Citrus Fruits we get to see J. C Volkamer’s (1644-1720) fascination and obsession over citrus fruits in the form of illustrations and text. In this edition, Volkamer shares years of hands-on experience to present a far-reaching account of citrus fruits and how to tend them. From a meticulous walk-through of how to construct temporary orangeries, glasshouses, and hothouses for growing pineapples to commentary on each fruit variety, including its size, shape, color, scent, tree or shrub, leaves, and country of origin. The edition also includes 56 newly discovered illustrations by Volkamer.
