"Cabinet of Curiosities" by Gordon Grice
Cabinet of Curiosities is a lavishly celebration of the wonders of natural history and the joys of being an amateur scientist and collector.
Nature writer Gordon Grice explains how scientists classify all living things through the Linnaeus system; how to preserve butterflies, crab shells, feathers, robin’s egga, spiders and honeycombs; how to identify seashells, antlers and horns; how to read animal tracks. And how to store and display your specimens in a cabinet of curiosities built out of common household objects.
Hard cover, 200 pages, 11 x 8 1/2 inches.
