Massimo Listri. Cabinet of Curiosities

Hardcover, 29 x 39.5 cm, 5 kg, 356 pages £ 100 Multilingual Edition: English, French, German Multilingual Edition: English, French, German

Cabinets of curiosities fascinated people of the 16th and 17th centuries. From crocodiles, minerals, and corals to paintings, ivory trophies, measuring instruments, and incredible automata, it was a glimpse into a world full of natural wonders and treasures that aimed to reflect the order of the universe. This magnificent volume takes us through the world’s most beautiful collections, into the Medici treasury or the Green Vault (Grünes Gewölbe) of Dresden, and offers no less than a brief cultural history of the miraculous.
