The New Sylva

A discourse of forest & orchard trees for the twenty-first century. Gabriel Hemery & Sarah Simblet. Bloomsbury Publishing, 2014. 400pp. ISBN 1408835444.

As sponsors of The New Sylva we are delighted to offer signed copies of this first edition.

A detailed & sumptuous celebration of Britain's trees & forests, John Evelyn's Sylva, published by the Royal Society in 1664, was the world's first comprehensive study of trees. Inspired by the original, silvologist Gabriel Hemery and artist Sarah Simblet have created this breathtaking contemporary version. Intertwining science, art and history, and illustrated with over 200 exquisite drawings, The New Sylva describes the tree species that play a significant role in today's society, and offers a deep and enriching understanding of our orchards and forests.

We are the only online source to offer the book personally signed by author Gabriel Hemery.

All proceeds will go towards our charitable work caring for forests.
