Botanical illustrations
GB 249 OF/8/1 · Séries · c. 1830

Botanical illustrations used for teaching at the Royal Technical College, Glasgow, and its predecessor institutions.

The illustrations appear to fall into two groups: hand-coloured engravings from Wagner's 'Pharmaceutische-Mediziner Botanik' (1828), and a series of hand-coloured drawings by an unknown artist. It is not certain, however, that this grouping is correct. There is also a list, probably of the Wagner engravings, which shows that many illustrations are now missing.
