"The British Arboretum is more than another history of green spaces. The authors reach beyond the boundaries of the arboretum, engaging with key themes in British cultural and scientific history in an informative and accessible manner."
—Thinking Like A Mountain
"This volume has resonance beyond the arboretum, and will be of interest not just to historians of science, but to anyone interested in our relationship with nature."
"The authors have illuminated a new object of interest with implications for an array of interdisciplinary studies, including history of science, garden history, the history of collecting and museums, and the analysis of Loudon's prodigious output . . . very useful as context for informed literary analysis . . . an especially engaging read."
"A valuable acquisition for academic libraries supporting curricula in landscape architecture, Victorian culture, or the history of science. Highly recommended."
"A detailed historical account."
—Quarterly Journal of Forestry
"A useful sourcebook."
