Description

This collage of pressed flowers, ferns, leaves and grasses was created between 1846 and 1850 by Ann Longfellow Stephenson (1814-1861) and is part of a scrapbook entitled "Herbarium."

Notes about the flowers and location of collection are written on the page. Ann lived in Gorham, but many of the specimens were collected in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
