View larger image of 'East of the Cape - Conserving Eden'Cowling & Pearce -  East of the Cape - Conserving Eden
Fernwood Press’s final natural history book continued their tradition of producing well researched and attractive books on interesting subjects. In this one the area covered is the meeting point of 6 of Africa’s biomes – Forest, Grassland, Savannah, Nama-Karoo, Succulent Karoo and Fynbos on the south eastern coast astride the border between the summer and winter rainfall areas. Those who have been down the Garden Route will have travelled through it. It has been neglected until recently in spite of its incredible diversity of plant and animal life at the meeting of these biomes, as well as its own speciality – “Thicket”. The book looks at all aspects of the natural history and the peoples of the area, how it developed and how it can be conserved for the future. Deserves to be as well known as their other books on Fynbos, Namaqualand, Table Mountain ..... Took some tracking down to get hold of it – and was well worth the effort. 2009 12 x 9 ¼ 168 pages

Francis I, the last monarch to rule over the Holy Roman Empire, was obsessed with flowers. In 1791, Francis I of Austria, a plant enthusiast, commissioned Matthias Schmutzer to paint portraits of every flower in his imperial gardens - which took more than three decades to complete. This book features 120 of the most outstanding of Schmutzer's watercolors (only 6 from the collection of 1300 have ever been published before). Painted life size, this high quality large format book reproduces them close to their original size. Sections give biographical information about Francis I, descriptions of the imperial gardens in the ruler's time, and photographs of how they appear today. 2006 13 ½ x 9 ¾ 303 pages
