Turning the Book Wheel
A tumblr of semi-random stuff from the stacks of the Smithsonian Libraries
17 of July, 2013

Please don’t eat the specimens, even if they are delicious! 

While our Smithsonian Environmental Research Center Library is right on the Chesapeake Bay, this guy is from out of town. From Sagami-wan san kanirui [The crabs of Sagami Bay] by Seibutsugaku Gokenkyujo. Tokyo: Maruzen, 1965.
