This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: What kid doesn't love picking up shells on the beach, or finding a bird's egg or snake's rattle, or--treasure of treasures--a fossil? Then taking it home to put on a shelf or in a shoebox? That same impulse has, since the Age of Exploration, motivated collectors to turn their passion into amazing "cabinets of curiosities"-- collections of beautiful and unusual objects that in many cases became the seeds of the world's great natural history museums."Cabinet of Curiosities" is exactly the book for every young explorer who loves finding stuff in nature and bringing it home. Created with the inspired bookmaking that made Chip Kidd's "Go" the must-have book about graphic design, "Cabinet of Curiosities? is" a lavish, oversize, illustrated, and chockful introduction to the wonders of natural history and the joys of being an amateur scientist and collector. Nature writer Gordon Grice, who started his first cabinet of curiosities at age six when he found a skunk's skull, explains how scientists classify all living things through the Linnaeus system; how to tell real gold from fool's gold; how to preserve butterflies, crab shells, feathers, a robin's egg, spider specimens, honeycombs--and a skunk's skull (and other skulls and bones); how to identify seashells; the difference between antlers and horns; what a thunder egg is and where to find it; the metamorphosis of cicadas; what a porcupine quill is made of; what to do with a shark's tooth; how to read animal tracks. And then, what to do with your specimens, including how to build a cabinet of curiosities out of common household objects, like a desk organizer or a box for fishing tackle.
