“There can perhaps be no greater tribute to Dr Gabriel Hemery’s The New Sylva than that it manages to inhabit the soul of Evelyn’s original, whilst reinvigorating it, and reshaping his message for our times.”


“Its pages contain not merely descriptions of the appearance of individual species . . . It is a magisterial work that combines art and history with science.”


“The book is a stimulating read, and beautiful to look at.”
