Depuis plus de 20 ans, il réalise des univers poétiques qui apaisent et réconcilient l’homme avec la nature. Ce qu’il désire avant tout, c’est que ses clients se sentent bien au quotidien dans les jardins ou les terrasses qu’il crée pour eux et avec eux. C’est l’histoire de ces rencontres et de son cheminement créatif, qu’il souhaite nous faire partager dans ce livre, à travers la présentation de 17 de ses plus belles réalisations. Pagg. 280, Euro 35

    OLIVER D. Well known among his contemporaries for his unrivalled knowledge of aberrant plants, Daniel Oliver (1830-1916) ran the herbarium at Kew Gardens and held the chair of botany at University College London, for which he was recommended by Charles Darwin. Although Oliver never visited India, his expertise in Indian botany grew considerably after he worked with an enormous number of dried specimens rescued from the cellars of the East India Company. In this book, first published in 1869, he sets out the basics of botanical study in India for the absolute beginner. It includes instruction on the anatomy of simple plants, lessons in collection and dissection, and explanations of botany’s often dense terminology. Annotated diagrams appear throughout, in both microscopic and macroscopic views. Rigorous and carefully structured, Oliver’s book remains an excellent resource for novice botanists and students in the history of science. Pagg. 393, euro 43
