Flowers in Cuba from a long time ago. From American Nancy Anne Kingsbury Wollstonecraft’s “Specimens of the Plants and Fruits of the Island of Cuba”. Gone since 1828 she has left a glorious treasury for us to see. Digitized and made available for download at the HathiTrust digital library, by way of Cornell University’s Library Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections.
