16Title:  Amelia Smith Calvert photographs of Costa Rican plants, circa 1909-1910   
 Creator:  Calvert, Amelia Smith, 1876- 
 Notes:  "Photographs of Costa Rican plants" is a two-volume album composed by Amelia Smith Calvert from material collected on a 1909 to 1910 expedition to Costa Rica. Each page of the album features a black and white photograph of a plant native to the region, with up to a paragraph of type-written text that provides the Latin and common names of the plant, its appearance and characteristics, the specific location of the specimen and the date on which the photograph was taken. Most of the photographs show specimens in situ, but some (especially those with delicate or unusual foliage and flowers) have been photographed in front of a plain backdrop and often alongside a twenty-centimeter scale. Of the nearly 100 species photographed here, most were collected in relatively untouched natural places like forests and streambanks, though Calvert also features plants that thrive in pastoral settings including shade trees (p. 39), weeds (p. 54), hedgerows (p. 44) and trees used as "living fences" (p. 29), as well as some common fruits and vegetables (p. 37 and elsewhere). Additionally, there are a few photographs of plants growing in Cartago Park (p. 31, 33, and 35) and pages 85 and 86 show a Furcraea growing in the garden of the Museo Nacional de Costa Rica in San Jose (one of these images also includes the only person photographed in the album, Señor Adolfo Tonduz, the botanist of the Museo). Several pages in volume I are dedicated to photographs of epiphytes (plants that grow on another plant for support, but glean their nutrients from rainwater, air and sometimes debris) including ferns, aroids and bromeliads. Most of the plants photographed in this work were collected from the Cartago province in central Costa Rica (including quite a few from the Irazu Volcano in this region, featured on pages 61-84), although plants from several sites in the Alajuela province and the municipal areas of Surubres, San Jose and Liberia are also represented. The first four pages of the album contain an alphabetized index of the species included in both volumes along with an indication of which photographs were reproduced in A Year of Costa Rican Natural History by Amelia and Philip Calvert. A note at the end of the index credits Señor Adolfo Tonduz and Professor Henry Pittier with identification of the plants.
