A snapshot from the library …

November 10, 2016

Came across this little 2 volume work in the Cole Library; these wonderful engravings just cheered me … so timeless …

from ‘Prosperi Alpini Marosticensis, philosophi, medici, in celeberrimo Lyceo Patavino pharmaciae professoris ordinarii, hortique medici praefecti, Historiæ Ægypti naturalis : pars prima. Qua continentur Rerum Aegyptiarum libri quatuor’

Prosperi Alpini Marosticensis(Alpini, Prosper, 1553-1617), was a philosopher, physician, professor of the ordinary,  a regular visitor to the Lyceum at Padua physic gardens that represents the natural history of Egypt.

nothing more to say ….
