Electronic Historical Botany Publications Now Availible on the Web

Among the documents that the State Library has converted to electronic format are the State Museum Bulletins. This well-known series began in 1887 with the publication of Contributions to the botany of the State of New York. Replete with plates, figures, photographs and drawings, these scientific studies are the foundation of our knowledge about the State’s geology, fauna and flora. Now almost 500 of these important works can be accessed from the State Library’s website; no login with a State Library card is necessary. Related State Museum publications, including John Torrey’s Flora of the State of New York and Lewis C. Beck’s Mineralogy of New York are also available.
