Archetypes of Botanic Literature

What is an herbal, a monograph, a sylva? These and other kinds of botanic literature are explored through the extraordinary Elizabeth Donnell Kay Rare Book Collection housed at the Haggerty Education Center. You will see books dating to the 16th century and gain an appreciation for their role in advancing horticulture and allied sciences. These classes are offered to members of The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum only. Prepare to be astonished. Attendance at this class is required for all other Rare Book Classes.
