Gardens of Knowledge: An Exhibit of Books About Botanical Gardens


"To scholars and students of botany, botanical gardens serve as living libraries; and books related to botanical gardens take the metaphor one step further. This virtual exhibit, based upon a real exhibit in the Department of Special Collections in November 1999-January 2000, highlights books on botanical gardens from the holdings of Special Collections. When the actual exhibit was installed, the weather outside was cold and gray, but the lush illustrations of botanical gardens and their contents served to remind us of growing seasons past and future."
