In The New York Botanical Garden, the institution's remark­able history and collections are presented in one magnifi­cent volume. Through hundreds of exquisite photographs and reproductions of rare botanical art, the book celebrates this urban oasis's 125th year as a place of unparalleled beauty in New York City and as an internationally renowned leader in plant research and conservation. This revised edi­tion includes more than 200 new photographs and features added sections that offer in-depth views of the extraor­dinary plants, spectacular gardens, and award-winning architecture that define the 250-acre landscape. Archival and contemporary photographs beautifully document the Garden's illustrious history and its ongoing development alongside essays that describe the origins and purpose of a botanical garden and provide a fascinating look at the Garden's groundbreaking scientific discoveries since its founding in 1891.
