Biographical/Historical note

Elizabeth Christensen of Lompoc, California, collected older garden catalogs, and some related publications, over a period several years beginning in about 1970 and continuing until the transfer of the collection to the Washington State University Libraries in 1996. Catalogs were acquired from many sources, including individuals, antique dealers, and chance finds. Some catalogs, chiefly recent, were acquired from their publishers.

Mrs. Christensen has explained some aspects of the history of horticultural catalogs in a manuscript, Of Seed Catalogs and Companies that accompanies the collection. She adds further information in  Japanese Imperial Morning Glories, Pacific Horticulture (Fall 1989).

Arrangement note

The materials are arranged in two alphabetical sequences, one of the catalogs and the rest of all other items. The catalogs are identified by the issuing firms, then placed in alphabetical order. A few large catalogs are arranged in an oversize sequence following the main alphabetical sequence. Most other items are identified by title or author, and arranged roughly alphabetically, with exceptions to accommodate variance of size and to fit items into the storage cartons.
