Netherlands: Brill, (2005. second edition). Quarto, laminated boards, black and white illustrations.
Farjon's (scientist/taxonomist, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew) love of pine trees is apparent in this oversize (9x12.75") volume, particularly in his detailed, finely rendered drawings of the trees, their needles, branches, and cones. This second edition begins with an overview of pines in general: information on botanical characteristics, classification.
