rare book room

In 100 plates containing 460 brilliantly colored engravings that represent a dazzling multitude of fishes, along with crustaceans, grasshoppers, a dugong, and a mermaid, Louis Renard?s Fishes, crayfishes and crabs, of diverse coloration and extraordinary form displays the most fantastic evocation of exotic aquatic life ever produced.

i just came across this amazing site: the rare book room with large scale facsimile reproductions of original books by newton, shakespeare, copernicus etc. etc.
