This feast for the eyes combines fascinating and gorgeous illustrations with anthropological and horticultural insights concerning the fruits we ecstatically devour, and why.  

Assembled between 1886 and 1942, the collection’s remarkable, botanically accurate watercolors were executed by some 21 professional artists (including nine women). Authored largely before the widespread application of photography, the watercolors were intended to aid accurate identification and examination of fruit varietals, for the nation’s fruit growers.
