Drafts of two letters (1890 July 14 and December 6) from Gibbes to C.S. Sargent at the Arnold Arboretum in Brookline, Mass. state Gibbes is sending Sargent papers for publication. Gibbes also asks Sargent for plant specimens.
A volume containing copies of letters in French includes an index. Copies of letters (1838-1850) are to family members and others at Charleston (S.C.), Philadelphia (Pa.), Havana (Cuba), Paris (France), and elsewhere. Class notes (ca. 1836-1837) from France relate to medical studies. Notes also include zoological observations (1856). A notebook (1836-1882) contains comments about books on religion. Ephemera (1836-1837) relates to Gibbes' studies in France.
Gibbes' writings include clippings of "astronomical notes" (1834-1869) published in Charleston (S.C.) newspapers, and articles and pamphlets about natural history, inventions, mathematics, and the biographies of famous individuals. Scrapbooks (1834-1893) contain clippings about Gibbes's work, science, astronomy, natural history, poetry, local events, and the Civil War. Prints are of individuals, battles, foreign cities, and other scenes. Astronomical charts contain diagrams and mathematical calculations. A glass plate negative depicts Gibbes.
