U.S. Exploring Expedition, 1838-1842: Original notebooks of the botanist, Vol. 5-6
About the Project
In 1838, the United States Exploring Expedition set sail for the Pacific Ocean and the South Seas. Botanist William Dunlop Brackenridge (1810-1893) continues his record of the observations fauna and collected specimens in the next leg of the journey in his "original notebooks" volumes 5 and 6. They cover his time in New South Wales, Australia. Please join your fellow volunteers to transcribe them and so make this handwritten record more accessible for today's researchers.
