The Three Founders of Botany: Rare Works from Special Collections
The Special Collections Department has many wonderful herbals in its rare book collection. In 2012, the department received Hieronymus Bock’s New Kreuter Buch. This completed former Department Head Tanya Zanish-Belcher’s dream of having an herbal written by each of the three founders of botany. The department decided to highlight these three herbals through an exhibit. The exhibit was on display from May 3 through October 15, 2013.
