An Historical Account of Coffee, with an engraving and botanical description of the tree (Cambridge Library Collection)

£20.50

First published in 1784. Ellis begins by describing the flower and fruit of the coffee plant. He then presents his historical survey, drawing on contemporaneous travel writing to illuminate coffee-related practices around the globe. The narrative takes in the plant's early uses in Arabia, its cultivation in the colonies, and the growth of coffee houses in Europe.
