Credits

All illustrations come from the collections of the library of the Real Jardín Botánico (RJB-CSIC) of Madrid, Spain. The digitised book collection encompasses all aspects of botany and related subjects, including horticulture, ecology, natural history, taxonomy, forestry and more.

The collection primarily presents content dating from the invention of the printing press (in the middle of the 15th century) up to the beginning of the XXth century. It is mainly focused on the Iberian Peninsula, Balearic Islands, Macaronesia, North Africa, the Mediterranean region and Latin America.
