Reference

Notes on the Botany of the Bible by David Gordon Rose, ISBN 9781912152032 (paperback), ISBN 9781912152049 (.mobi/Kindle print replica)
Number One in the publisher's Reference series, this is a facsimile of a 1920s manuscript. David has added notes every four pages updating taxonomy and biblical references, clarifying points and cross-referencing. There is a subject index across facsimile pages and the new notes. The original author's line drawings have been supplemented with illustrations from J. H. Balfour's Plants of the Bible of 1885.
Such a facsimile is probably unique. It should be hugely enjoyable to people who are interested in the subject of plants of the Bible and Bible gardens.
Published 23 April.
