Description:

The Fruit Grower’s Guide by John Wright, published from 1891-1894 with illustrations by Miss May Rivers, Worthington G. Smith and George Shayler. These vivid prints show Miss Rivers’ artistry and skill, with an intensity of color and attention to detail that is remarkable. Peaches, apples, cherries, raspberries, pears, grapes, plums, and strawberries are all illustrated. John Wright was the editor of the popular London Journal of Horticulture. He remarks cryptically on times when orchards were uprooted to give place to hops (for making beer!) He quotes the medical journals of his time as recommending that &quotwe ought to eat, as a people, ten times more fruit than we do, and it is ten times more delicious than nauseous medicines.&quot
