With the library closing for winter break beginning this Saturday, December 19th we wanted to take the opportunity to wish you a safe and happy holiday season. Below is an animated card created by FSU Libraries using illustrations from one of our very own herbals!
While a lemon tree might seem like an odd choice for a holiday card, winter is citrus season here in Florida. The lemon tree illustration itself comes from Culpeper’s English physician and complete herbal, published in 1798 by Nicholas Culpeper. This work has been fully digitized so all the beautiful illustrations are available to view online.
The FSU Libraries will reopen January 4, please check the library website for updated operating hours. Upon reopening in January, FSU Special Collections & Archives Research Center will continue to operate remotely until further notice. More information can be found on our remote services webpage.
