The Holden Arboretum

By Adams, Ian;Love, Steve

Akron, Ohio, U.S.A.: University of Akron Press, 2002. N.B. Veryy slighty rubbed to top edge of front D/J. 231pp.The 'Holden Arboretum' is a living museum of forests and woodlands, meadows and display gardens, mountains and ravines, rock ledges and lakes, rivers and streams, wetlands and bogs, with an abundance of wildlife. It is a place of year-round beauty with tremendous scientific and ecological importance. The Holden Arboretum was established on 100 acres in 1931 by people of vision and great generosity who understood the importance of protecting precious green spaces for future generations. Today, Holden spans 3,400 acres and is nationally know for its plant collections, education programs, research efforts, and its commitment to conservation. Albert Fairchild Holden, the founding father of the Holden Arboretum, was born in 1866, the third of nine children born to Liberty and Delia Bulkley Holden. His mother was instrumental in the founding of the Cleveland School of Art; his father was involved in the mining business and was, at one time, the owner of Cleveland's major newspaper, "The Plain Dealer". Though Holden had at one time considered bequeathing his estate to Harvard, his alma mater, the untimely death of his 12-year old daughter, Elizabeth, inspired him to instead endow the arboretum in her memory. A trust agreement in his will designated that funds be set aside for development of an arboretum following a life interest for his two remaining daughters, who were teenagers at the time of his death in 1913. . First Edition. Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

The Last Stand: A Journey Through the Ancient Cliff-Face Forest of the Niagara Escarpment

By Kelly,Peter E. And Larson,Douglas W.

Toronto: Natural Heritage Books, 2007. The most ancient and least disturbed forest ecosystem in eastern North America clings to the vertical cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment. Prior to 1988 it had escaped detection even though the entire forest was in plain view and was being visited by thousands upon thousands of people every year. The reason no one had discovered the forest was that the trees were relatively small and lived on the vertical cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment. "The Last Stand" reveals the complete account of the discovery of this ancient forest, of the miraculous properties of the trees forming this forest (eastern white cedar), and of what is was like for researchers to live, work and study within this forest. The unique story is told with text, with stunning colour photographs and through vivid first-hand accounts. This book will stand the test of time as a testament to science, imagination and discovery. 162pp.. Paperback. Like New/No d/j as Published. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
