Go back in time through this viewing of selections from the Lenhardt Library’s Rare Book Collection. See a variety of colorful seed catalogs from the late 1800s to early 1900s and ads for seed companies that appeared in early nineteenth-century horticulture magazines. Also on view—a rare “salesman’s sample” catalog from Chautauqua Nurseries that features plates joined by ribbons, bound accordion-style, and all in its own carrying case.
