Description
The Nursery and Seed Ephemera Collection began when the Department of Special Collections conducted a thorough review of the Nursery and Seed Catalog Collection. For the purposes of this collection, nursery and/or seed ephemera is promotional literature, plant or seed listings without ordering information, or catalogs for garden supplies other than plants or seeds.
Background
The Nursery and Seed Ephemera Collection began when the Department of Special Collections conducted a thorough review of the Nursery and Seed Catalog Collection. Many of the items in that collection did not seem to fall within the scope of that collection: items with no ordering information were better classified as promotional or trade literature; and some of the catalogs were for garden supplies, not seeds.
Extent
5.6 linear feet.
