My first post here.
I've seen this raised on the Email discussion list, just wondering what the status is?




Mike and Paul have done some of the digitization and it's on their website here:  http://www.gpbotanicals.com/herbertia/

If your looking for a specific article or topic I have some and could scan and send to you.

I wonder if they openend the binding for those scans - the way my physical copies are built up, one wouldn't get a clean scan by pressing them down on the scanner...

There's an open source book scanning hardware project - use a camera, much faster.

I don't know if they do it, but I'd expect software to be able to correct for page curvature, as in work out the curve.


I am still working on the project as I get time. I have scanned 1937, 1940 to 1961. I am currently scanning 1939. I have OCR'd 1937, 1941, 1949, 1950, 1951,1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961. I do disassemble the books to get a better quality scan image. If someone does have a particular issue they need / desire let me know and I will prioritize the work flow of that issue. All the best, Michael

Hi, I found this thread while google searching for a specific article, and made an account her just to ask: does anyone have access to a copy of the article "The subgenera, sections and subsections of Allium L." by Hamilton Traub, which is apparently pages 147-163 of volume 24/the 1968 edition? I do not see the 1968 edition in the list of digitized ones.

Hi Mcd - maybe private message mrhomick - as he suggested above.


Hi, I found Mike & Paul's page yesterday while searching for some original descriptiosn of Hippeastrum (as Amarylis). 

I think I already have enough material for a couple of papers on taxonomy and nomenclature, only looking at issues of 1950-1960!!

Many thanks for this huge task, and sorry for the great amount of pages I just asked Michael for...
