From the Back Cover
Carefully arranged into six major divisions (quadrupeds, snakes, mollusks and crustaceans, fish, birds, and insects), approximately 1,300 copyright-free images include realistic and fanciful portrayals of a varied array of real animals, in addition to such imaginary creatures as unicorns, dragons, basilisks, harpies, griffins, and other mythical beasts. Identifying captions in Latin accompany many of the illustrations.
Commercial artists, illustrators, and craftspeople will find a host of uses for these lovingly detailed engravings: as book and magazine illustrations and as attention-getting graphics ideal for enhancing flyers, brochures, newsletters, and any number of other print projects. Art lovers and antiquarians―anyone with an interest in the art and ideas of an earlier era―will enjoy browsing through these wonderful antique images.
Dover (1998) republication of 123 plates from the work published by R. & G. Wetstenios, Amsterdam, 1718.

New rule...hide the credit card before you get drunk. Old rule was to hide it in one of those Chinese puzzle boxes because I thought I couldn't get in to it drunk. Apparently you go cave-man when you get drunk and smash things and that spiffy puzzle box was no challenge to The Hulk (that's the drunk version of me) and a hammer (Thor?). I started hiding things from The Hulk. I think he's too dumb to remember what sober me does.
