Mann Library is extremely grateful to the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia for the print of Thomas Sully's portrait of Alexander Wilson, as well as for permission to use an image from their fine book on William Bartram's botanical and zoological drawings. We are also greatly indebted to Henry Morris of the Bird and Bull Press in Newtown, Pennsylvania for permission to reproduce the handsome wood engravings by Wesley Bates from his 2000 edition of The Foresters. Thanks also to Susan Greaves of Cornell University's Map Library for ferreting out the 1842 map used in the exhibit, and to Cornell Library's Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections for the loan of their issues of Port Folio and prints of Wilson's poems.
