  • For our third installment of #marinemonday, we bring you images from the fourth volume of Conrad Gessner’s monumental book on zoology, “Historia animalium”, written between 1551 and 1558. First published in 1563 “Historia animalium” is an impressive 4,500-page encyclopedia, which Gessner produced by combining data from old sources, such as the Old Testament, Aristotle, folklore, and medieval bestiaries and his own observations. The first four volumes (in order) focus upon quadrupeds, amphibians, birds, and fishes (a fifth volume was later produced on snakes). In his volume on fishes, Gessner illustrated many marine animals in a strikingly-realistic fashion, while also including some fictional marine animals that many still presumed to be real at the time (scroll through the photos to see some of our favorites!). Gessner created a new, comprehensive description of the Animal Kingdom in the book; resulting in the first attempt by anyone to describe many animal species accurately. Unlike many works produced at the time, it was illustrated with hand-colored woodcuts drawn from personal observations by Gessner and his colleagues. To see this stunning book for yourself, ask for “Rare QL41.G37” the next time you visit Rauner Library.  #marinemonday #zoology  #oceans  #fish #raunerlibrary #dartmouthcollege #dartmouthspecialcollections #marinehistory #historyofscience #rarebooks #rl_rare For our third installment of #marinemonday, we bring you images from the fourth volume of Conrad Gessner’s monumental book on zoology, “Historia animalium”, written between 1551 and 1558.

  • For today’s #comicstripsaturday, we bring you a series of four pen and ink drawings by Charles M. Schulz houses here at Rauner Library, originally published on January 7th, 1975 as part of his wildly-popular “Peanuts” comic series. By 1999, Charls Schulz’s comic strip had become so popular that Charlie Brown and his friends were being published in 2600 newspapers across 75 countries. A total of 17,897 ‘Peanuts’ comic strips ran from 1950 to 2000, each one drawn by Schulz.  Given our fondness for poet Robert Frost, it’s no wonder that this particular strip made its way into our collections! If you are a Peanut fan as we are, stop by our reading room and ask for “Iconography 608” to see this Frost-themed comic for yourself! #comics #raunerlibrary #dartmouthcollege #winterwonderland #dartmouthspecialcollections #comicstripsaturday #peanuts #peanutscomics #charliebrown #rl_illus⁠⠀ For today’s #comicstripsaturday, we bring you a series of four pen and ink drawings by Charles M.
