A Painted Herbarium: The Life and Art of Emily H. Terry


The first illustrations of plants from Minnesota seem to be those of Emily Hitchcock Terry (1838-1921), who spent 1872-84 in Minnesota. A Painted Herbarium is the result of Smith's extensive study of Terry. Terry was far from the first botanist to collect in Minnesota but she was the first known to have illustrated living plants from that state. Trained initially at home by her artist mother and scientist father, she later studied at the Cooper Union in New York City. This book gives a biographical sketch and reproduces a sampling of her artistic work.
