BMS Library @Kew

The BMS Library at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, holds over 1100 books . Development of the Library has depended largely on the generosity of members. Many offers of books and monographs, particularly important taxonomic works, and gifts of money to purchase items, are gratefully acknowledged.
