Like any scientist, Swedish biologist Carl Linnaeus needed proper supplies. One of the previously undiscovered documents that the Linnaeus Link Project Officer, Cathy Broad found at the British Museum Library included a request for glass specimen bottles in which to collect either tree samples, or for carrying water on expeditions (they're not sure which). For you Linnaeus fans, next year will mark the tercentenary of his birth.
