" The North American Sylva is a landmark in the literature of America. In addition to being the first significant survey of American trees and soil, it serves as a fascinating travelogue, providing detailed portraits of the developing American landscape. With Nuttall’s supplement, “it is no exaggeration to remark that it is the most complete work of its kind, and is a production of unrivalled interest and beauty, giving descriptions and illustrations of all the forest trees of North America, from the arctic limits of arborescent vegetation to the confines of the tropical circle" (Sabin 48694-5).

This collection is currently on display at the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
