About this product

Please note: this software was written and designed before 64-bit operating systems (OS) were introduced. If you are running a 64-bit OS, such as a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or Windows 7, this software may not function.

This unique pteridological archive documents the birth and changing fortunes of the BPS – the World's oldest Fern Society – as recorded in 93 years of the BPS Committee Minute Book from 1891 to 1983. The original Minute Book itself – the Society's most valuable document – exists only as a single 3 kg bound volume with marbled covers and ruled lines. Entries are in handwriting in the early years and as stuck-in typescript later. The CD facsimile presents all the 633 pages of recorded Committee deliberations up to 1983. It shows the tea stains and yellowing pages indicative of age.
