The Book of Fruits
Pomona Britannica, originally published in 1812, celebrated the richness of food variations cultivated in England, with illustrations by George Brockham of 256 species of fifteen kinds of fruit. The book recreates a very rare original copy: a limited edition, hand-colored volume that was first owned by Princess Elizabeth, daughter of George III. Each chapter focuses on one family of fruit covering everything from nutritional information to cultural and historical analyses.
