The Cabinet of Curiosities from Taschen

Hardcover, 6.1 x 8.5 in., 2.42 lb, 448 pages
Cabinets of curiosities fascinated people of the 16th and 17th centuries. They offered a glimpse into a world full of natural wonders and treasures that aimed to reflect the order of the universe. This volume takes us through the world’s most beautiful collections, into the Medici treasury or the Green Vault (Grünes Gewölbe) of Dresden, and offers no less than a brief cultural history of the miraculous.

“The cabinet of curiosities celebrated the act of collection for its own sake—an almost random accumulation of natural-history specimens and other bizarre objects.”
