The Conservatory and Botanic Garden of Geneva are pleased to announce that 
a fully interactive web site containing samples of signatures, herbarium 
labels, and fragments of letters of the most important classical botanists 
is now on line (

This tool, known as “Auxilium ad Botanicorum Graphicem” is the result of 
an effort initiated in 1972 by Hervé-M. Burdet, former keeper of the 
Geneva Botanical Library, and aims to represent an important tool for the 
identification of handwritten notes on herbarium specimens. A correct 
identification may establish the authenticity of type specimens and other 
material of historical and nomenclatural standing.

All comments or recommendations about the use and content of the current 
version of this web page are very welcome and should be addressed to 
Patrick Perret, curator of the Genevan botanical library
