About this Item

Octavo. 165pp. Inscribed by the author to Richard Mickey and dated October 14th, 1916. The inscription reads, "From every tree and plant & flower / We learn of Wisdom, skill & power, / And from the starry host above / We hear the voice that 'God is love.'" Written for children to teach them about trees and their care, the book is heavily illustrated with photographs by the author, including a frontispiece photograph of the author with his camera, as well as engravings and descriptions of birds provided by the United States Department of Agriculture. Davey pioneered the science of tree surgery and was known as the "Tree Doctor." He advocated for a more scientific approach to tree research and maintenance and invented a number of methods for caring for trees, including cabling and bracing of structurally weak trees and angling cuts when pruning limbs. He founded the Davey Institute of Tree Surgery, which still continues Davey's advocacy today. Some wear to edges and rubbing of boards, else very good in green cloth. Bookseller Inventory # 26505
