Garden books in the Special Collections of the Barr Smith Library
Although the Barr Smith Library has not deliberately collected works on gardening or garden history, a surprising wealth of material has accumulated from the bequests of major donors such as Sir Samuel Way and Mrs Christine Macgregor. We have also collected works on plant and garden history to support teaching and research in architecture, landscape design, botany, history and literature. In the pages that follow, we highlight a small number of such treasures.
