Acerca de


A survey of the Library of Congress' collection of botanical texts written from the 16th to the late 19th centuries, with color reproductions of paintings depicting particular plants or illustrating attitudes toward plants. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From Library Journal:

This beautifully illustrated book serves two purposes: It traces 500 years of botanical exploration of the United States by both Europeans and Americans, and it provides an opportunity to see and enjoy over 100 of the botanical illustrations in the collections of the Library of Congress. Nearly 200 naturalists and botanists are mentioned in the text and index. However, no index of the plants discovered is included. Nor is there an index of the artists or complete citations for the lavish illustrations' sources. Still, this book fills a gap for the interested generalist and is one of a nice, readable series. The publisher, who had discovered a major theft of materials at the Library of Congress while working on this book, will publish separately a list of illustration source citations, available upon request.--Ed.
