2Title:  Waiting   
 Creator:  Burroughs, John, 1837-1921 | Moroz, Andrew M. 
 Notes:  Limited edition of 10 copies, signed and numbered by the artist. "Burroughs explained his poem as 'a happy acquiescence of the order of the universe as I found it--a faith in the essential veracity of things.' He understood, at age twenty-six, 152 years ago, that nothing is unconnected on the earth--the plants, the animals, and the heavens beyond our sphere. The deleterious effects of human activity from attempts to disconnect the parts, for convenience, are just now being realized in our time--and barely accepted. I chose to decorate the poem to reflect the order of the universe as I too have happily found it, while tramping around in Burroughs' own deep woods, the Catskills of New York"--Artist's statement. "This book was hand set, printed, and bound by Andrew M. Moroz. Assistance from Nora Chase. Engravings were cut in the end-grain of maple. The book is set in Centaur type and printed on Magnani Revere Silk paper"--Colophon. The book features the poem, followed by twelve wood engravings by the artist corresponding to each half-stanza, followed by a portrait of the author.

4Title:  The mollusk   
 Creator:  Richard, Amy Koski, 1962- | Knudson, Ellen | LibraryPress@UF | Boxcar Press 
 Notes:  Title from spine label of box. Sculptural paper "shell" with 20 page booklet (8 x 6 cm) contained inside with red letterpress printed poem "The mollusk." Edition of 20 copies, signed and numbered by artist and collaborator, Ellen Knudson. The Mollusk is the 2018 artist's book edition from the Marjorie S. Coffey Library Endowment Residency at the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida. The book was created by Amy Richard during the semester-long residency in the fall of 2018. This project is the result of research and study in the Harold and Mary Jean Hanson Rare Book Collection in the Special and Area Studies Collections Department. Inspiration was found from a range of rare and historical books about Florida malacology (the study of mollusks), nature, poetry, book arts and livres d'artiste. Consult colophon. "Produced as a variable edition, this sculptural artist's book is designed and made entirely of handmade paper by the artist. The shell serves as a "cover" and was produced using a paper lamination technique with abaca paper and hand processed kozo bark lace. The color was achieved with fiber reactive dyes and kakishibu (fermented persimmon juice). The translucent "mantel" pages were pulp printed on flax paper and the remaining pages (the "gills") are made of kozo paper."--Colophon. Letterpress printed in the UF School of Art and Art History Type Shop and produced in collaboration with Ellen Knudson, Associate in Book Arts at the University of Florida. Photo-polymer plates by Boxcar Press. The shell is housed in a clamshell box covered in sage green linen with letterpress printed spine label and color illustration on lid. "Referencing Atrina rigida, an elusive species of pen shell found in Florida's shallow coastal waters, this sculptural artist book is intended to be held and read as a celebration of nature and a humble reminder of our own fragile connection with one another."--Artist's statement printed inside box.

7Title:  Titian: a fresh look at nature   
 Creator:  Mazzotta, Antonio. | National Gallery (Great Britain) 
 Publication:  National Gallery Co, Distributed by Yale University Press, London, New Haven, Conn.], 2012. 
 Notes:  Published in conjunction with the exhibition "Titian's first masterpiece: The Flight into Egypt," held at the National Gallery, London, Apr. 4-Aug. 19, 2012. In this short illustrated book, Mazzotta presents the experience, together with Titian's native landscape of PievediCadore, as crucial influence in the artist's early representation of nature. The recently restored "Flight into Egypt" (now in the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg) - probably painted when Titian was still a teenager - is a vivid proof of his interest in the depiction of animals, plants and figures in the landscape. The chosen comparisons by the author suggest that Titian was as innovative and as influential in his view of nature as he was in portraiture. Includes bibliographical references (p. 86-87). 
 Extent:  87 p. : col. ill. ; 21 x 21 cm.

 Notes:  "Highlighting an enduring interest in natural history from the 16th century to the present, this gorgeous book explores depictions of the natural world, from centuries-old manuscripts to contemporary artists' books. It examines the scientific pursuits in the 18th and 19th centuries that resulted in the collecting and cataloguing of the natural world. It also investigates the aesthetically oriented activities of self-taught naturalists in the 19th century, who gathered flowers, ferns, seaweed, feathers, and other naturalia into albums. Examples of 20th- and 21st-century artists' books, including those of Eileen Hogan, Mandy Bonnell, and Tracey Bush, broaden the vision of the natural world to incorporate its interaction with consumer culture and with modern technologies. Featuring dazzling illustrations, the book itself is designed to evoke a fieldwork notebook, and features a collection pocket and ribbon markers. "-- Issued in connection with an exhibition held May 15, 2014-August 10, 2014, Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, Connecticut. Includes bibliographical references and index.

19Title:  Visual voyages: images of Latin American nature from Columbus to Darwin   
 Creator:  Bleichmar, Daniela, 1973- | Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery | Yale University Press | Getty Foundation 
 Notes:  Published on the occasion of an exhibition held at the Huntington Library, Art Gallery, and Botanical Gardens September 16, 2017-January 8, 2018. "Published witht the assistance of the Getty Foundation." Includes bibliographgical references (pages 207-218) and index. "From the voyages of Christopher Columbus to those of Alexander von Humboldt and Charles Darwin, the depiction of the natural world played a central role in shaping how people on both sides of the Atlantic understood and imaged the region we now know as Latin America. Nature provided incentives for exploration, commodities for trade, specimens for scientific investigation, and manifestations of divine forces. It also yielded a rich trove of representations, created both by natives to the region and visitors, which are the subject of this lushly illustrated book. Author Daniela Bleichmar shows that these images were not only works of art but also instruments for the production of knowledge, with scientific, social, and political repercussions. Early depictions of Latin American nature introduced European audiences to native medicines and religious practices. By the 17th century, revelatory accounts of tobacco, chocolate, and cochineal reshaped science, trade, and empire around the globe. In the 18th and 19th centuries, collections and scientific expeditions produced both patriotic and imperial visions of Latin America."--Book jacket.
