Absolutely superb reference book with great photos at actual size and superb detail. Good amount of information around each species including similar species that can be easily confused. I can't quite believe what a bargain price this is available for considering the quality.

TOP 50 REVIEWERon 28 October 2011
It's what it says it is - a visual guide of six hundred leaves representing some of the world's most beautiful trees. It can be used for identification, knowledge, as a treasury of leaves. Each leaf is beautifully photographed, in addition there is a small line drawing of the tree showing height and form, information about the tree and similar species. Also on each page is a map of the world and key facts. It's fascinating to see the subtle differences between species. This is a book that many people would pay ten times the asking price. As an author of gardening books myself that involve much research, I really admire the detail and research that have gone into making this book. It is a triumph. Recommended for anyone who loves trees. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

This is a great book. A great big chunky beautiful looking book to have in my studio. It has life size pictures of so many leaves. There are about 75 different types of oak in there! I didn't even know there were that many! Very inspiring.

The book contains extensive information about the leaves from trees from all over the world with pictures of autumn/summer leaves in actual size. Measurements both in english system and in metric system, and names of leaves also in latin.

The feel & look of this book is pure quality. The pictures are amazing, & the information is well presented & laid out.
You probably won't be able to identify all trees with this book alone, but it will greatly enhance your knowledge.

As a gardener for an Arboretum, having a lot of exotic trees is always a challenge when trying to identify something with a lost label. This book is a useful addition to other excellent I.D guides - particularly the ones by Roger phillips - and really helps to identify that mystery specimen. Its also a good read, to expand your knowledge of what lies beyond your countries borders!

I really enjoyed this book, with excelent images (above the average in this kind of book).
I believe that the excelent work on each species didn't give the space for many species (still very good) and with more relevance for north american species.

Have many books on trees but this well worth having as great illustrations make identification of trees from leaves simpler. Technical details at start of book useful too.

Wow!!! A book to browse through over and over. I love it as it has sufficient information, but not too much.
