Lady Rockley, through her husband, the Baron Rockley, traveled to Canadian outposts, taking notes on botanical subject matter. As an aristocratic woman, Lady Rockley had access to travel and leisure time, but also to intellectual networks. This book reverses the normative gender roles of the time, with Lady Rockley writing the text and Baron Rockley illustrating it.

Agnes Chamberlin was the daughter of a celebrated Upper Canadian literary figure
Agnes Chamberlin was the daughter of a celebrated Upper Canadian literary figure, Susanna Moodie, best known for her account of pioneer life Roughing it in the Bush, first published in 1852. Her first attempt to paint wild flowers came in 1863, when her aunt Catherine Parr Traill, Susanna Moodie’s sister, showed Agnes the manuscript of a projected book on Canadian flora. As no publisher would consider the book because it lacked illustrations, Agnes decided to try to supply these herself. . Chamberlin began to draw plants from nature, producing accurate renditions of the wild flowers she found around her home near the Humber River. She continued to draw from nature throughout her life. The Fisher collection includes over two hundred paintings of individual flowers, as well as groups of flowers, and over 70 paintings of fungi. Most are mounted on heavy paper and have botanical names supplied on the mounts. . Selections from the Chamberlin drawings are currently on display as part of our exhibition, Nature on the Page: The Print and Manuscript Culture of Victorian Natural History. . #hernaturalhistory#womenshistorymonth#historyofscience#victoriannaturalhistory#fisherlibrary#uoft

Florida is well-known for it’s beautiful landscapes, wildlife, and native plants. To celebrate the #HerNaturalHistory Women’s History Month Challenge set by @biodivlibrary we want to feature some of the artwork created by Minna Fernald. In 1942, she donated over 320 paintings to @floridamuseum. The paintings were recently uncovered in a drawer in Dickinson Hall. * Minna Fernald’s husband was the chair of the department of entomology at the University of Massachusetts until they moved to Winter Park, Florida to retire. While she wasn’t formally trained as a scientist, Fernald did study water coloring, and during her lifetime was featured in exhibitions and won awards for her work. Her attention do detail resulted and artistic in beautifully realistic paintings. * The George A. Smathers Libraries, in partnership with the Florida Museum, are in the process of digitizing these beautiful examples of Florida plants and flowers. While the originally will stay in the museum, the digital versions will soon be available in UFDC. * Featured are her renditions of a bromeliad and the savannah meadowbeauty. * * * #WomensHistoryMonth#FloridaWomen#DigitalCollections#Collaboration#Bromeliad#SavannahMeadowbeauty#NativeFloridaPlants#Watercolor#WomenArtists#ArtandScience#IGLibraries

We’re back again with another post for @biodivlibrary’s #HerNaturalHistory Challenge. It would be difficult to imagine going through this entire month without mentioning Maria Merian, so here she is! Maria Sibylla Merian, a German artist, was born Apr. 2, 1647. Maria was the daughter of Matthaeus Merian, an engraver and artist from Frankfurt. She was trained as a painter, but from a young age was fascinated by caterpillars and their transformation into butterflies and moths. At the age of 52, Merian decided to undertake a trip to Surinam where the Dutch had long maintained a South American colony. Accompanied by her younger daughter, she spent all her waking hours in Surinam drawing the flowers and foliage, as well as the insects and caterpillars, of the tropics. She originally planned to stay for 5 years, but an illness forced her to head home earlier than expected. After returning to Europe, Merian started converting her paintings into engravings for publication. Her “Metamorphosis insectorum surinamensium” (“Metamorphosis of the Insects of Surinam”) appeared in print in 1705, and it is one of the great illustrated natural history books, as well as the first significant scientific work published by a woman in the West. Each of its 60 plates depicts a plant, usually in multiple stages of flowering and fruiting, as well as at least one insect, also in various stages of metamorphosis. For more information about Maria Merian, be sure to visit her Scientist of the Day profile here: https://www.lindahall.org/maria-merian/ Merian was also featured in #WomensWork, an exhibition on female scientific illustrators co-organized with @mobotgarden: https://womenswork.lindahall.org/merian1.shtml [RBR QL566.M47 1705 folio] #rarebooks#iglibraries#librariesofinstagram#botany#entomology#envhist#sciart#histSTM#histsci#WomenInSTEM#STEMinKC#STEMConnectKC

Today’s #womenshistorymonth post involves a mystery! A scientific mystery! Botanist and @uchicago alumna, Dr. Norma Pfeiffer (SB 1909, PhD 1913), was the youngest person to receive a doctorate at UChicago at age 24. Here she is pictured in the 1909 “Cap and Gown” yearbook. She was an expert in #lilies and discovered the Thismia americana in wetlands surrounding Chicago’s Lake Calumet. She studied the plant from 1912 to 1916...but then the species vanished. T. americana hasn’t been seen since, though people still hunt for it. #hernaturalhistory@biodivlibrary#botany#naturalhistory

Dr. Emily G. Hunt (Women's Medical College of Philadelphia class of 1889) was a Botany professor at the Wagner from 1896-1900. Her lectures were incredibly popular, averaging 250 students each class! She taught a variety of botanical subjects and illustrated her lectures with specimens she collected and lantern slides. The tiny earthstar mushrooms, Geaster minimus, were used in her lecture on Mushrooms and Toadstools. Images 3-4 show a summary of this lecture from her 1897 course 'Chapters from the Life of Plants.' Dr. Hunt was also a lecturer on Physiology and Hygiene at Swarthmore College, an instructor in Zoology at Friends' Central School, and practiced medicine as a clinician in Children's Clinic, Woman's Hospital. #HerNaturalHistory#WomensHistoryMonth#womeninscience#naturalhistory#naturalhistorymusem#botany#earthstar#librariesofinstagram#archivesofinstagram#IGLibraries#specialcollections#wagnerfreeinstitute

The theme for the @iglibraries March challenge is #hernaturalhistory. Our second entry features this sketch of #butterflies and #caterpillars, by Gertrude A. Stoker. The sketch appears in “All the Year Round: A Nature Reader. Part I: #Autumn” (1898), by Frances L. Strong. Both women were teachers at the St. Paul Teachers’ Training School in Minnesota. One of purposes of the book, which was part of a series used in the St. Paul public schools, was “to open the eyes of the children to the wonders of the world around them.” #hofstra#specialcollections#WomensHistoryMonth#womensherstorymonth@BioDivLibrary#librariesofinstagram

In #HerNaturalHistory titled “Superdove,” Courtney Humphries traces pigeons and their impact on society from Ancient Egypt to today. Full disclosure: My dad kept pigeons on the rooftop of his childhood home in Queens, NY, and we even kept a coop where I grew up on Long Island. I love these incredibly interesting birds. Maybe we need a flock at #RMU? We could send messages back and forth from campus to Yorktown! (Just a thought…)

fern. a word removed from the Oxford Junior Dictionary. Where would we or Emily Dickinson be without it . . An altered look about the hills— A Tyrian light the village fills— A wider sunrise in the morn— A deeper twilight on the lawn— A print of a vermillion foot— A purple finger on the slope— A flippant fly upon the pane— A spider at his trade again— An added strut in Chanticleer— A flower expected everywhere— An axe shrill singing in the woods— Fern odors on untravelled roads— All this and more I cannot tell— A furtive look you know as well— And Nicodemus’ Mystery Receives its annual reply!. .

Margarette W. Brooks is best remembered as Edward S. Morse’s secretary, but she was also a naturalist and author in her own right, publishing on entomology and silk-culture. One of our favorite parts of her papers is the co-existence of her meticulous scientific papers alongside intimate reflections on house and home, including extensive drawings and photographs of her friends, family, house, and cat. Margarette lived an independent life, never marrying, and stayed in Salem with her two younger sisters, Jennie and Alice, until she passed away in 1929. Swipe through for snapshots of her life as represented in her personal papers. From Papers of Margarette W. Brooks, E 10. #HerNaturalHistory#womeninscience#vintagephotography#ephemera#naturalhistory#librariesofinstagram#archivesofinstagram#iglibraries#specialcollections#manuscript

For #woodcutwednesday & #hernaturalhistory we present Herbals by Agnes Arber, one of the books in A Hunger of the Mind, our new catalogue with @dcolthamrarebooks (link in profile). Arber was a prominent botanist as well as a historian of science, and this now-classic work on Renaissance and early modern herbals (published in 1912) reproduces many delightful botanical illustrations from the period. We’re particularly keen on this depiction of the (female!) snake in the Tree of Knowledge, which would also work quite nicely for #tattooabletuesday. Swipe to see more fabulous woodcuts! 🐍🌳 #31daysofwomensbookhistory#womenshistorymonth#womeninSTEM#womeninscience#womenshistory#histstm#historyofscience#biology#botany#plants#medieval#renaissance#illustration#woodcut#engraving#rarebooks#books#bookstagram#antiquebooks#firstedition#bibliophile#bookcollecting#bookfetish#oldbooks
