Master's manuscript

8 December 2016 – 29 April 2017

Warmly welcome to our exhibition Master's manuscript: Head Gardener Gernandt's "Reules for the art of gardening"  from 1837 in the light of the University Library's collections.

The exhibition draws attention to the modern edition of Gernandt's manuscript (Arena Publishing 2016) and is a collaboration between the Botanical Garden and the University Library.

Beside the original manuscript, the exhibition contains material from our collections, chosen to reflect but also deepen the knowledge of what Gernandt is describing. Here is the gardening literature which Gernandt himself had access to, later material such as nursery catalogues from the end of the 19th century, as well as modern research literature on gardening history.
