A View of the Cultivation of Fruit Trees: And the Management of Orchards and Cider
""Pomologist William Coxe (1762-1831) is considered to be one of the foremost fruit growers in America. At his home in Burlington, NJ, he experimented with new varieties of fruits, many based on the specimens he collected both in the United States and abroad. This 1817 work is considered by many to be the authoritative work on fruit culture of the colonial and revolutionary periods.""
