Book Scans: Albertus Seba's Cabinet of Natural Curiosities

Despite the majority of illustrations I chose to include in this post, a good majority of the recorded species are snakes and butterflies. In my eyes, marine creatures are some of the most fascinating and beautiful on Earth. This huge book retails between $600 (used) and $990 (new) on Amazon so unless you're a one-percenter with a penchant for oversized books ("In this corner, weighing in at 17.4 pounds..."), check out your local library or its interlibrary loan system.
