Reference: Americana online exhibition

An exhibition of books and manuscripts relating to the history of the Americas, drawn mainly from the Hunterian collection. The non-medical section of Hunter’s library reflects interests both deep and wide: fine topography, botany, zoology, astronomy, numismatics, fine art, and certain aspects of vernacular literature. A strong section of books on exploration and travel contains a wealth of Americana as well as important materials on the East Indies and on contemporary voyages to the South Seas.
