The Orchid in Lore and Legend
Timber, 2000 - 184 páginas
The orchid is the most evocative of flowers, inspiring in some of its admirers a fanaticism akin to madness, as demonstrated in Susan Orlean's popular novel The Orchid Thief. This elegant survey of the orchid treats its place in legend and suggests the impact that these exotic plants had on the temperate European mind. Berliocchi chronicles the adventurers and scientists who introduced these marvels, discusses their place in the arts from literature and magic to cuisine, and concludes with accounts of the most important genera and their cultivation. Splendidly illustrated with period engravings and botanical paintings, it is literate and delightful.

Interesting accounts. Seriously flawed by lack of footnotes and any documentation that would point to primary sources. Leer reseña completa
Review: Orchid in Lore and LegendReseña de usuario - Patricia - Goodreads
The lore and legend was impressively wide-ranging and offered with grace and wit. Condensing this kind of range into a small space makes this book hard to sit down to for a sustained read, but a good book for dipping into for about five minutes at a time. Leer reseña completa
