More than two centuries of natural history illustrations from the collections of the Smithsonian Institution Libraries are featured in a 300-page volume recently released by Assouline Publishing. The book, “Botanicals,” brings to life stunning hand-colored engravings, etchings and lithographs of flowers, fruits and butterflies.
