Howard Berg, past ABS president, has a collection
of antiquarian botanical books which includes a complete set of the Curtis Botanical Magazine from 1787 to the current date. He also has a number of complete sets of, among others, Paxton, Edwards and Loddiges in addition to smaller sets by Hooker and others.

We are fortunate to have him share his begonia collection with us. More illustrations and descriptions will be added as he makes them available to us.

The citations were extracted from J. Golding & D.C. Wasshausen Begoniaceae Ed. 2 Species List.
