Wilson’s China: A Century On
by Mark Flanagan and Tony Kirkham

Ernest Henry Wilson was the foremost plant collector of his generation, responsible for introducing over 1,000 species to our gardens in the West. The authors of this book reveal Wilson’s adventures through excerpts from his own writings as well as describing their own experiences tracing his journeys in the wilds of China today.
Through Harvard’s Open Collections Program, many manuscript items from The Ernest Henry Wilson Papers have been digitized. These instructions explain how to see all of Wilson’s photographs that have been digitized and are available on HOLLIS Images.
