A library reference question directed to Moldenke, regarding whether the "crown of thorns" plant sold by florists was actually the same plant mentioned in the Bible, led to twelve years of research and the publication in 1941 of the ground-breaking Plants of the Bible, still in print in 1999. In 1941 Moldenke supervised illustrations for this work, made by artists employed at The New York Botanical Garden through the Federal Arts Project. Another federal Works Project Authority project he provided was the enumeration of his collection numbers at the time. Moldenke's collaborator on this book was his wife, Alma Lance Ericson Moldenke, co-editor of the journal Phytologia. Book is signed by the Moldenkes. Size: 7½" x 9½" 0.0.
