The Pressed Plant Collection of Beatrix Farrand
Farrand was a skilled archivist, managing her own library, archive and herbarium. She bequeathed her papers, travel journals, project plans, garden designs, photographs, and library of 2,700 books to the University of California, Berkeley, where her gifts formed the basis of the Environmental Design Library. The twelve prints featured in this notecard set are from that collection. Each is a selection from Farrand's herbarium of 923 specimens, which she gathered from her garden at Reef Point.
