I had an excellent birthday. I got drinks with friends at a local bar on my birthday, then on the following weekend I went out to a drag show and dancing. Then the next night I saw a Lord of the Rings Burlesque show which was AWESOME.
So pretty great birthday.
I now need to focus on getting things for my dorm and packing for my trip to California.
Historiae Animalium by Conrad Gesner (1551-1587)
"Conrad Gesner’s Historiae Animalium (Studies on Animals) is considered to be the first modern zoological work. Building a bridge between ancient, medieval, and modern science, he chronicles data from old sources, such as The Old Testament, Aristotle and medieval bestiaries, and adds his own observations, creating a new, comprehensive description of the Animal Kingdom. In what is the first attempt by anyone to describe many of the animals accurately, the book is illustrated with hand-colored woodcuts drawn from personal observations by Gesner and his colleagues.”
