This exhibition of books from Special Collections highlights the exploration of new territories, the discovery of new plants, animals, and objects (many of which found their way intoWunderkammer), and the scientific knowledge that ultimately arose from close observation of artifacts and natural phenomena. Curated by Catherine Rod and Chris Jones, with Chase Booth ’16 and Sam Dunnington ’14. Poster designed by Stephanie Porter '14.  


This is a companion exhibit to the Faulconer Gallery exhibition, From Wunderkammer to the Modern Museum 1606-1884, drawn from the collection of Florence Fearrington.
