Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A small genus of trees or tall shrubs, of the natural order Cupuliferæ. The species have deciduous leaves, like those of the beech, and hard tough wood, and are natives of Europe, the Levant, and North America. The hornbeam of Europe, C. Betulus, and the hornbeam or blue beech of the United States, C. Caroliniana, are small trees with heavy, very hard, and strong wood, which is sometimes used for levers, the handles of tools, cogs, etc.
- n. mostly deciduous monoecious trees or shrubs: hornbeams; sometimes placed in subfamily Carpinaceae
“This memorandum was probably written from recollection long afterward, with an error in the dates, and the species was first entered in the catalogue as follows: "Azad, arbor persica carpinus folio, Persian hornbeam, raised from seed, anno 1747; not in England before.”
“Now the American hornbeam can reach for the sky 30 metres or so, which is too big for most, but I'm on the lookout for carpinus turczanowii, which will be between six and 12 metres when mature.”
