The John Muir Botanical Project was created between 2003 and 2008. I worked with Dr. Bonnie J. Gisel, who conceived the idea, to study John Muir as a botanist. Bonnie did the research and I photographed and restored the plant specimens that Muir collected between 1864 and 1900. This is a beutiful book. The images are made directly from the plants that Muir collected.  Heyday Books of Berkeley, California published the book. It is unfortunitely out of print. The first edition was hard covered and the second edition was a soft cover. It is probably available used on the internet.
