Rare Books from the MBG Library
This web site, presented by the Missouri Botanical Garden Library and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, features 112 volumes from our Rare Book collection. Our goal is to digitize and preserve beautifully illustrated and botanically significant books in our private holdings in order to make them available to an international audience. This project will result in a large database of botanical and gardening illustrations and text available to scholars, gardeners, and book enthusiasts through this web site.
