Michel Adanson Library finding aid updated

17 December 2018

We have digitized Adanson's annotated copies of Linnaeus' Genera Plantarum, ed. 2 (Paris, 1743, AD 81) and Species Plantarum (Holmiae, 1753, AD 85). Links to PDFs of the books have been added to the finding aid for the Michel Adanson Library. The letters and manuscripts already have been digitized and are accessible via the finding aid.
