I love to see the sketches! The yellowish paper and the hand written notes. Isn't it amazing to touch the exact same paper that traveled so much? Such careful work, made almost 200 years ago... It feels like a discovery to me, it makes me immensely happy.


Lovely inquiry and discussion. I think our colleagues in Vertebrate Zoology, Div of Fishes and the scientific illustration departments will be very happy to see this. A rose is a rose is a rose. Am forwarding!
