The Gardener’s Monthly of 1880

Our feature this week is a very informative horticultural publication in the DHS rare book collection. Among the many images contained in the book is a picture of eminent horticulturalist Robert Buist who, among other things, is credited along with Joel Poinsett with introducing the Poinsettia to the United States from Mexico.

All images can be magnified by clicking on the image, clicking again on  ‘view full size’ (bottom right in slide show) and clicking a third time on the tiny circle with a plus sign.

A highlight from the Delaware Historical Society’s book collection appears on this blog every Wednesday morning.
