J. C. Volkamer. The Book of Citrus Fruits
Citrons, lemons, and bitter oranges float like heavenly bodies above Italian villas, Nuremberg gardens, and picturesque countryside in J. C. Volkamer’s ode to the citrus fruit. Reproducing a rare hand-colored set of the copper plates, this publication shows 170 varieties of citrus fruits. Full of fragrance and color, they revive a time when fruits really were exotic.
