Howard Berg, past ABS president, has a collection
of antiquarian botanical books which includes a complete set of the Curtis Botanical Magazine from 1787 to the current date. He also has a number of complete sets of, among others, Paxton, Edwards and Loddiges in addition to smaller sets by Hooker and others.

We are fortunate to have him share his begonia collection with us. More illustrations and descriptions will be added as he makes them available to us.

Curtis's Botanical Magazine Prints

William Curtis launched The Botanical Magazine in 1787 and to date over 10,000 illustrations of plants have been printed. We thank Howard Berg for sharing from his collection the approximately 100 Begonia illustrations and descriptions. The citations were extracted from J. Golding & D.C. Wasshausen Begoniaceae Ed. 2 Species List.
