Here are a few photos from a recent trip to London. In addition to attending the annual meeting of the Society for the History of Natural History, the focus of which was natural history art and illustration, I was also able to visit several botanic gardens, libraries and museums: The Natural History Museum; the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; the RHS Lindley Library; the Chelsea Physic Garden; and last but not least, the Linnean Society of London. It was awe-inspiring to see these historical collections and to talk with some of the people who maintain them and provide access to them today.
While in London I also participated in meetings with librarians and scholars from England, Sweden and Denmark to discuss possible collaborative projects based on our Linnaean collections.
Here are a few views from my visit there.
