The LuEsther T. Mertz Library of the New York Botanical Garden digitized a select group of books and journals from the Library’s holdings that relate mostly to the natural history and landscape development of New York City and State. Featured in this collection are works on the flowering and non-flowering plant life of many towns and counties of New York State and early and rare guides to street trees, parks and the developed landscape and roadways of New York City’s boroughs. Several journals and reports are from institutions such as the Staten Island Association of Arts and Sciences, the Horticultural Society of Staten Island, the Bronx River Parkway Commission, the Brooklyn Parks Commission, and Olmsted Vaux & Company. Digitization for this project was made possible by a generous grant from the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO).
