Default [IBC] Dover Publications - Tree books

This is page 1 of 6 pages of Dover Publications books on nature.
They include, scattered throughout, 5-6 excellent tree ID books
for various parts (or all) of North America. The set by Little
is THE authoritative tree ID. I have most of these and can
recommend them all.

I stumbled across this resource while looking for material on
Native American beadwork for Jackie. Got 3 for her.

Jim:
One book that could interest those who do virtuals for
their styling work - ideas and tree anatomy details - is from
Dover _Artistic Anatomy of Trees_, inexpensive, I think
$11.95. I recommend it
to students in art. Dover is one of my favorite resources.

Default [IBC] Dover Publications - Tree books

Lynn & Jim: Dover Publications was founded by a former neighbor of mine,
Hayward Cirker. He died about 2 years ago. When he went into the
publishing business, he knew absolutely nothing about it, except that he
wanted to publish material that nobody else wanted to touch. His bet paid
off big time because he had the field all to himself. His widow, Blanche,
still runs the firm.

I've known about Dover Publications for a long time. My father,
who collected incunabula (OLD, OLD, OLD books and writing), old
hand-made paper, and other literary antiquities, would always
query Dover when he acquired a "new" item to see if the publisher
had a reprint of the -- often unreadable or too fragile to
read -- text in question. On a startlingly large number of
occasions, they did. We always had Dover catalogs around the
house, and I still have several of their folklore books from my
old days as a folkie singing the folk festival circuit.

I'd never been to the website, though, so I spent a while there
yesterday. They have a large number of Japan-related
publications: a classic book on Japanese gardens that I'm going
to buy, a book that I'm also going to get on woodblock prints, a
couple of CDs with clip art of Japanese heraldry and other
Japanese designs, etc. that I may or may not get.

For those of you that grow other things than bonsai there is a
very large gardening section; naturalists have an even larger
palate to choose from (some of it cited yesterday), and the art
catalog seems almost limitless. There's a big section on
Oriental religions (and other religious pathways, as well). I
can see that I'm going to be a bit poorer for a while as I sort
through it all.

All in all, there seemed to be something for most every (legal)
taste.
