The Sir Hans Sloane Herbarium

The Sloane Herbarium contains volumes 1-7 of plant specimens collected on Sloane's voyage to Jamaica (1687-1689).

During his voyage to Jamaica, Sir Hans Sloane collected the first plant specimens to be brought back to England from the region. The specimens were mounted in seven bound volumes, which have been preserved intact. They remain an invaluable resource for both scientific and historical research.
