Friday’s Snapshot from the Library …

January 15, 2016


You may be aware that I began a new reclassification project at the end of last year.  It is going well although the first 100 or so items were biographies, dictionaries and lexicons mostly in German and not very interesting.  This week marked a change in type of books and I celebrate.  With a picture or two from The naturalist’s repository : or, Miscellany of exotic natural history : exhibiting rare and beautiful specimens of foreign birds, insects, shells, quadrupeds, fishes, and marine productions : more especially such new subjects as have not hitherto been figured or correctly described : forming a compendium of the most interesting modern discoveries in zoology by E. Donovan. Needless to say I am delighted about this prettier item and I am hoping this trend will continue for a while … however it might prove a little distracting.
