Lewis and Clark Herbarium: Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia Digital Imagery Study Set: Special Publication 19
Earle E. Spamer (au); Richard M. McCourt (au)
The Lewis and Clark (L&C) Expedition of 1804-1806 is one of the great stories of exploration in America. Few of the scientific specimens collected by L&C survive, except for hundreds of pressed plants in The Acad. of Natural Sciences in Phila. Digital images in this CD-ROM show each plant in more detail than ever before. Browse through the collection, plant by plant. Read the labels written by Lewis in the field. Refer to facsimile reprints of the original records and colored engravings of Lewis’s gatherings as pub. in the first comprehensive catalogue of American plants by Frederick Pursh in 1813. Read facsimile reprints of important 19th cent. pub. about the plants. Scientific descriptions and comments by L&C scholars bring the herbarium up-to-date.
