Apples As History 18 janvier 2011
Par Signal Associates - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Owners of the first edition of this book know its value. I could say that's why the out of print first edition has been selling for more than $100. Money talks. But what is the money saying? Readers of the first edition discovered that besides owning a definitive guide to heirloom apples of the South (which also appear in many other regions), that the author is a meticulous historian and has polished a facet of Southern history that entertains while using the prism of fruit growing to add a valuable perspective to the history and culture of the Southeast.

Calhoun's knowledge of the apple is not purely academic. In his small orchard he has raised several hundred varieties and knows their quality and idiosyncracies. He has also traveled widely throughout the entire Southeast finding old trees, talking to the people who own them, and researching the companies that developed and sold them.

Besides all this, it's a beautiful book that Calhoun and his wife Edith spent many years perfecting. It should sit on your living room table next to a bowl of apples.

Watercolors alone are worth the price 25 avril 2011
Par S. Tolleson-Rinehart - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a lovely and satisfying book: knowing the history of our old apples is priceless, so I'm grateful for Mr. Calhoun's assiduous efforts. The inclusion of the rare Department of Agriculture watercolors of many of the older varieties makes the book a must-have for those who value beautiful botanical art. Mr. Calhoun dedicates the work to his beloved wife, Edith, who was his companion in research travels as, apparently, in all other things, and who, as he says poignantly, lived long enough to hold the revised version in her hands. I am so sorry for his loss, and so grateful that we nonetheless have this, his and Edith's gift to all of us.

A Masterpiece 8 février 2012
Par Sundown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a very thorough work on old apples grown in the south. The first four chapters provide some information on apple cultivation history and uses. The remaining chapters are an encyclopedic listing of existing and (believed) extinct southern apples. As the author notes, it's not a book you can turn to in order to easily identify the apple variety growing on an old homestead, unless you have some idea of possible names: there are a lot of tart red apples that ripen in September (for example). However, for reference purposes it's invaluable, and it is also very useful if you are planning to plant some heritage apple trees and want to learn about their characteristics--flavor, form, distribution, ripening date, and in some cases, disease resistance. The new edition has a large number of color illustrations (it's interesting that the USDA had artists who painted apples way back when); these depict both existing and extinct varieties. It's well worth the full sticker price, and is a bargain at anything less.

Old Southern Apples 9 avril 2011

Best book out there on Heritage apples. It goes beyond merely discussing the history of apple varieties to include data on fruit use and configuration, tree growth habit, disease resistance, etc. I refer to this book constantly and my apple loving friends are using it to plan home orchards here in Virginia.

This book is a long time keeper! I'm looking to plant an heirloom orchard with 100 or more old apple trees, and this book is a treasure trove of content. Thanks for writing it!
