Becky Harris added this to 10 Great Coffee Table Books
I can't decide if I'd rather have a nickel for every Tom Ford book I see in a magazine spread or a nickel for every copy of Cabinet of Natural Curiosities. Perhaps we'd earn the most money for every time we see So I Married Adventure on a blog. I wonder if anyone has ever actually read that one? I digress. As for The Cabinet, I like to leave it out and open to a different page each day, so that I can admire all of the beautiful drawings inside.

Becky Harris added this to Give Your House Some Natural Curiosities
Back in the 18th century, Amsterdam-based pharmacist Albertus Seba amassed an incredible collection of specimans and commissioned illustrations of them. A wonderful way to enjoy gorgeous renderings of flora and fauna is by leaving a copy of his The Cabinet of Natural Curiosities out on the coffee table. I like to leave mine open, studying a page for a few days and then flipping to a new one. More:Flea Market Finds: Botanical PrintsYour Decor: Creature ComfortsUsing Shells in Your Decor

Of course, what is a room full of curiosities without the greatest natural history book of all time?
