More Garden Catalogs

Check out the flickr stream from the Biodiversity Heritage Library (and their web page) for many MANY catalogs.  They include every page within not just the covers.   The BHL has just completed a social media blitz on their extensive library of old catalogs because they consider it a way to follow America's garden history and what the catalog industry did to make changes.  They also have a web page, are on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and a Blog (and a whole host of other devices I don't use.)

"The Biodiversity Heritage Library is a consortium of major natural history, botanical, and research libraries that cooperate to digitize and make accessible the literature of biodiversity held in their collections as a part of a global "biodiversity commons."
