This isn’t quite the type of snow we’re expecting to get lots of in the northeastern US tomorrow — but it’s close.
John F. Hall-Edwards’ Carbon dioxide snow (1913).
From Mary Francis Baker’s Florida Wild Flowers (1926).
Drop “Valentine” into the search box on the MHL’s Internet Archive page and you get some interesting results. Lots on nineteenth century physician Valentine Mott, as you might imagine, but also items about a blind child prodigy, Valentine Miller and a 1909 warning on the perils of venereal disease from the AMA.
You can also flip through F. C. Valentine’s 600 Medical Don’ts and, if you’re tired of reading, watch a compilation of Marlboro commercials!
In honor of #DarwinDay2018…
From Charles Darwin, F.R.S. (1872).
Don’t forget on this last day of #ColorOurCollections 2018 to head over to the project page and download your favorite books for this weekend, the long weekend ahead, heck, the long weekend after that, too — after all, there are dozens of participating institutions!
We went through and picked some our favorites from past years of #ColorOurCollections — I’m particularly fond of these two.
A little late for National Handwriting Day, but still…
From William French’s The psychology of handwriting (1922).
