The Book of Palms
After an epic Amazonian journey through Brazil and Peru from 1817 to 1820, German botanist Carl von Martius compiled a catalogue of all known genera of palm trees. This encyclopedic work, reproduced in our volume, is a jewel of 19th-century botany and is celebrated for its detailed classifications, maps, color landscapes and diagrams.
