Hear the thoughts and voice of early naturalist William Bartram through the newly published book William Bartram, The Search for Nature’s Design. This book from the University of Georgia Press contains transcripts of many of Bartram’s manuscripts collected from more than 100 libraries and archives, including the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. In a lecture recorded at HSP on September 15, 2010, contributors to the book discuss the special role of manuscripts as tools for historical understanding and writing.
