The Paul Aellen Album

  • GB235 AEL
  • Item
  • 1964

Paul Aellen was a visitor to the RBGE Herbarium in the Winter of 1964, one of the earliest to the new building opened in June of that year. He worked very diligently in a quiet way on the top floor, researching Turkish Chenopodiaceae. To the amazement of the herbarium staff, just before he returned home to Basle he handed over this delightful and amusing account of his observations on the microcosm of life in theherbarium with photographs, magazine cuttings and beautifully witty pencil and ink sketches.
