Treasures of the Month
This month, Project Archivist Alex Milne is looking into the history of the Iron Chest that once held the Society's most important organisational documents and artefacts.
This month, Assistant Archivist Christina McCulloch has been sifting through research (including our newly catalogued Domestic Archive) to look into the fantastic manuscript of Couch’s A History of the Fishes of the British Islands
This month's Treasure is our retiring curator of zoology, Ollie Crimmen, whose first job at the NHM was to X-ray the Linnaean fishes, as described by NHM's Chrissy Williams below.
This month Glenn Benson, our Honorary Curator of Artefacts, looks at another treasure that hides in plain sight in the Linnean Society’s rooms in New Burlington House: the one metre tall statue of Carl Linnaeus
For October's "Treasure of the Month", our Librarian Will Beharrell describes the fascinating private library of Alfred Russel Wallace and efforts to reunite it in one space after more than a century
Carl Linnaeus' catalogue of plant species, "Species plantarum", was published in 1753 and changed the course of botanical nomenclature. In this blog, we uncover the many unique and wonderful copies held in libraries across the world.
