Earliest Evidence of Banana Culture   [Alan Davidson's copy], Reynolds, Philip Keep
161 Reynolds, Philip Keep Earliest Evidence of Banana Culture [Alan Davidson's copy]
Baltimore American Oriental Society 1951 Paperback Good 
Illustrated, pp (6), 28, paperback, sliughtly worn, but quite a good copy. (Supplement to the Journal of the American Oriental Society; Number 12, December 1951). [Alan Davidson's copy, with his "fishy" bookplate. One of the most important figures in twentieth century culinary writing and scholarship, Davidson was a British diplomat and historian best known for his writing and editing on food and gastronomy. He was the author of the 900-page, encyclopedic The Oxford Companion to Food. In 1948, Davidson joined the Foreign Office and served in diplomatic posts in Washington, Tunis, Brussels, Cairo, the Hague; from 1973 to 1975, he was ambassador to Laos. While living in Tunis, his wife asked him to look for a cookbook on fish because she did not recognize any of the local varieties. Not being able to find one he wrote one himself. The original manuscript was copied with a stencil machine. A copy reached the British cooking guru Elizabeth David, who passed it on to Penguin Books, which published it in 1972 as Mediterranean Seafood. This was followed by Seafood Of South East Asia (1979) and North Atlantic Seafood (1979), for which he travelled throughout the region, gathering thousands of recipes from Portugal to Iceland.]

Plant Canopies - their growth, form and function, Russell, G.; Marshall, B. & Jarvis, P.G.
168 Russell, G.; Marshall, B. & Jarvis, P.G. Plant Canopies - their growth, form and function
Cambridge University Press 1990 0521395631 / 9780521395632 Paperback Very Good 
Small 8vo, pp x, 178, paperback, a very slight crease to the upper cover, otherwise almost as new. [This volume is a synthesis of current knowledge about the growth, development and functioning of plant canopies. The term canopy is taken to include not only the upper surface of woodland, as in the original definition, but also analogous surfaces of other plant communities. Although much research has been carried out on single leaves, canopies are much more than just a collection of individual leaves, and so exhibit properties of their own. It can be argued that it is primarily at the canopy rather than the leaf level that solutions to many practical problems about the growth of plants in the field can be found. In this volume, canopy properties are considered in terms of the processes, such as transpiration and photosynthesis, by which the canopy and its environment interact. Topics discussed include the meaning of canopy structure, interception of solar radiation, exchange processes, nitrogen nutrition, leaf demography and heliotropism. Key principles are illustrated by examples from a wide range of plant community types and geographical locations. This book will be of interest to advanced students and research workers in agriculture, botany, crop sciences, ecology and forestry.]
