Erowid's Albert Hofmann Collection
DESCRIPTION
The Albert Hofmann Library is a collection of around 4000 articles related to LSD, Psilocybin, BOL (an obscure relative of LSD), and a handful of other psychoactive chemicals. These articles were bound into 93 cloth bound binders and covers almost all of the world's scientific literature about psychedelics through the early 1980s. While Albert Hofmann was working at Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, where he first synthesized LSD, he and his staff began collecting all the journal articles, news stories, and mentions of LSD they could find, copying them, taping them into binders, and organizing them into a sequential library.
