Now, . . . there is presented here the library's more reccently acquired holdings of original work by botanical artists and illustrators of the mid-twentieth century. This exhibition provides abundant evidence of present-day vitality among botanical artists, and points to a number of persons for whom the production of such work is a profession.''--from the introduction.
