9780980702163: Imitation of Life : a visual catalogue of the 19th century fruit models in the Santos Museum of Economic Botany in the Adelaide Botanic Garden : a collection of papier mâché models made by Heinrich Arnoldi & Co. Gotha, Germany (1856–1899).

This sumptuously illustrated 384-page book from the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide features 192 apples and 129 pears - presented as an album of portraits - of the many fruits suggested for cultivation in South Australia during the 1860's - 1890's. Stunning photography captures the life-like detail of this intriguing papier-mâché model collection. Showcasing a lost art form and lost fruit varieties, Imitation of Life details the fascinating story of this rare German model collection. Adelaide's collection is one of the largest collections, from this maker, to survive and the only one known to exist outside of Europe. After spending 60 years in storage the collection has been reinstated to the permanent display of the Santos Museum of Economic Botany - one of Adelaide's lesser known treasures.
