This pretty little volume was one of the most popular scientific textbooks of its day! It was written in the 1220s and was first printed (after the invention of the printing press, of course!) in 1472. It went through 200 printed editions, remaining well-known into the 1600s. . . #StoriesofScience #OthmerLibrary #HistoryofScence #Astronomy #HistoryofAstronomy #RareBooks #Bookstagram #IGLibraries

Abraham Boose's etching of, "David with the head of Goliath", (1651).
The Black-necked Tree Agama (Acanthocercus cyanogaster) is found in many countries throughout southern and eastern Africa. Hand-colored lithograph by Friedrich Carl Vogel for Eduard Rüppell, Neue Wirbelthiere zu der Fauna von Abyssinien Gehörig (1835-1840). This work on African zoology dealing with mammals, birds, reptiles, and fishes from the Red Sea was a great expense, as Rüppell obtained only about sixty subscribers for it in the whole of Europe.

HIRASE, Yoichiro. Kai senshu [trans.: A Thousand Shells]. Kyoto: 1914-15-15-22. • First edition of this “very beautiful book of shells” (Hillier), with hand-colored woodcuts of 400 specimens. Hirase (1859-1925), was a scholar, collector, and dealer in shells in Kyoto. He published a short-lived journal called “The Conchological Magazine” and in 1913 opened the first museum devoted to shells in Japan which, according to Dance, was also “probably the first of its kind in the world” (p. 221). Hirase had an international reputation and sold or exchanged shells with private collectors and museums in Europe and the United States. • Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, p. 985–(with color reproduction)–“Kai Senshu merits direct comparison with the finest of western colour reproduction of shells: but the Japanese prints, as Hirase goes out of his way to emphasize, are colour woodcuts.”

#FromtheArchives : in 1976, Donald and Louise Cowan, two founders of #UDallas , donated money to purchase bells for the newly-completed Braniff Memorial Tower. In November, the bells (named Columba, Agatha, Catherine and Andrew) were blessed, dedicated, and placed within the tower. Here, Professor Heri Bert Bartscht of the Art Department marks the bells with a cross at their blessing ceremony. #archiveswednesday #belltower #braniff #heribertbartscht #bartscht #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram

It's #gisday , but I'm stuck on this pre-gis #map of the distribution of Sperm whales—aka spouting fish with horizontal tails—in the Summer months based on logbooks dating from 1763 to 1920. This map comes from a set of 4 maps from 1935 to accompany a report on the distribution of certain whales as shown by logbook records of American whaleships. To make these #maps , many an Ahab forsook peaceful land to make war on the horrors of the deep. #mobydick #hbdmobydick #harvardlibrary #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram Image description: a world map centered on North America with blue, green, red, and orange dots showing the clusters of whale migration in the northern Atlantic and several latitudes in the Pacific.
Winnebago artist Angel De Cora illustrated and designed the cover for this compilation of Native American stories. Born on the Winnebago Indian reservation in Nebraska in 1868 or 1869, De Cora graduated from Smith College in 1896 and then went on to Drexel Institute to study illustration under Howard Pyle. De Cora was one of the first American Indian artists to be accepted within the mainstream art world, and became the best-known native artist in the United States before World War I.

We are saddened to hear of the passing of former Senator Frederick E. Berry, for whom our building is named. In 1998, Senator Berry told the Lynn Item "The first thing you need in life is a sense of humor. The second is you've got to work hard. The third is you've got to be a friend." That is how we will always remember him. Senator Frederick E. Berry Papers #SSUArchives
The Codling Moth can be bad news for your apple harvest. You can see the damage they do in this plate from The Apple, 1915.

This week's #LibraryHarvest is courtesy of Leonardo da Vinci. This c.1498 paper manuscript is a #notarial copy of a document dealing with the exchange of land by Lodovico Sforza il Moro, Duke of Milan, and Elisabetta Trovamali. Both plots of land are described as adjoining the vineyard of one 'Magister Leonardus Vincius Pictor'. When Leonardo died in 1519, he left the vineyard to two of his favorite pupils: Salai and Villani. . . . @RCLibraries @rclspecialcollections #leonardo #EarlyModern #manuscript #SpecialCollections #WednesdayChallenge #RareBooks #LibrariesOfInstagram #IGLibraries @iglibraries

Watch out for the cuckoo wasp! Ruby-tailed wasps (Chrysis ignita) are kleptoparasites. They lay their eggs in the nests of other bees and wasps — particularly mason bees — where their larvae develop by eating the eggs and larvae of the bees. #SciArt by Edward Donovan for his Natural History of British Insects, Vol. 1 (1792). Donovan was an Anglo-Irish natural history author and illustrator.

For today's #LibraryHarvest post, we present a harvest from the sea, the modest turbot, elevated to the cover of the Lufthansa menu shown here from our David Toms collection. The menu devotes two pages to a description of the fish (in English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish); following a description of the young turbot as a tidy, symmetrical creature, "then comes the metamorphosis. One eye begins to migrate, stopping only when it reaches the other side of the head. The pelvic fins, too ,shift position, and the mouth slips round half way and stays awry, so that the physiognomy of the fully grown scophtalmus maximus, the turbot, suggests that of a pipe smoker." Alas, there was no turbot on the menu for this flight, but passengers could delight in Malossol Caviar, lobster medallions, or fried eggplant. Thanks to our friends @nul_prescons and @rickerlibraryui for hosting! . . . .

For #woodcutwednesday we have a woodcut from Pietro Andrea Mattioli (1500-1577) ‘Commentarii in sex libros Pedacii Dioscoridis Anazarbei de medica materia.’ Published in 1570, it examines plants and animals. * Although Mattioli wrote on a range of subjects, and published translations of non-medical works, he is most celebrated for his work on botany and medicine, and of these works his best known are his translations of, and commentaries on, Dioscorides' De medica material. Mattioli's first Italian translation from the Greek was published in Venice in 1544, and its original purpose was relatively modest: it was to provide doctors and apothecaries with a practical treatise in Italian with a commentary that would enable them to identify the medicinal plants mentioned by Dioscorides. Further, expanded editions followed in 1548, 1550 and 1552, and the success of these editions, led Mattioli to translate the work into Latin in 1554. This wealth of additional material transformed Dioscorides' work from an antiquarian text into a contemporary physician's vade mecum, enhanced by Mattioli's own observations and many of his own drawings, which remained in print virtually continuously until the 18th century. * #illustrationoftheday #illustrationgram #engraving #sciart #woodcut #woodengraving #printmaker #print * #book #books #oldbooks #booklove #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #rarebooks #antiquebooks #antiquarianbooks * #library #librarylife #librariesofinstagram #iglibraries #librarian * #histmed #historyofmedicine #medlibrary #specialcollections #16thcentury

Gustave Dore hits the mark with a scene from Canto 19 of Dante's, "Divine Comedy". 🎯 "Out of the mouth of each one there protruded ⁠The feet of a transgressor, and the legs ⁠Up to the calf, the rest within remained. In all of them the soles were both on fire; ⁠25 ⁠Wherefore the joints so violently quivered, ⁠They would have snapped asunder withes and bands. Even as the flame of unctuous things is wont ⁠To move upon the outer surface only, ⁠So likewise was it there from heel to point. ⁠30 "Master, who is that one who writhes himself, ⁠More than his other comrades quivering," ⁠I said, "and whom a redder flame is sucking?" And he to me: "If thou wilt have me bear thee ⁠Down there along that bank which lowest lies, ⁠35 ⁠From him thou 'lt know his errors and himself." And I: "What pleases thee, to me is pleasing; ⁠Thou art my Lord, and knowest that I depart not ⁠From thy desire, and knowest what is not spoken".

For #tinytuesday (and also a late contender for #marbledmonday ), we’re sharing “Le Roi S'Amuse,” a five act play written by Victor Hugo. This edition was published in 1833, though the original play debuted on November 22, 1832. The play itself has an intriguing place in French history, having been created to reflect the life of King Francis I, but soon reflected its author's political opinions, thus becoming very much about the then-current monarch, Louis-Philippe. Due to this, the play was ordered to close on opening night much to the anger of Victor Hugo. It was a long battle between Hugo and this censorship, as, Hugo argued, such censorship had been declared illegal in France two years earlier. Despite his show's prohibition from running in France, Hugo published the play as a book and, in its preface, included a scathing attack on the attempts to silence his work. Eventually, Hugo won the fight--his book becoming widely popular, even turning into the opera, Rigoletto, by Verdi (which Hugo begrudgingly admitted was better than the play). Even pocket-sized, the play surely has massive meaning not only for the life and time of Victor Hugo, but for French history itself. #rarebooks #rarebook #tinytuesday #specialcollection #specialcollections #iglibraries #librariesofig #marbledpaper #endpaper #tinybooks #bibliophile #bookstagram
