To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Wageningen University, the Library has commissioned a special botanical card set. The set contains 10 highlights of the Library's Special Collections department. You can buy the cards at the WUR webshop.

Most of the images were produced around the beginning of the 20th century for publications intended to popularize the natural sciences for a wider audience. These pictures blur the line between science and art.

The images represent a valuable collection of Wageningen University & Research’s heritage as they were specifically acquired by professors of the National Agricultural College in its starting years.

The Botanical Card Set contains 10 blanc cards with 10 envelopes.  The card set is available in the webshop of WUR 100 Years .
