From Library Staff

Seba amassed one of the largest and most unusual natural history collections of the 1700s, then commissioned illustrations of all his specimens. Somehow a few fantastic beasts such as a dragon and a hydra crept in!

A most unusual collection of natural specimens Albertus Seba 's Cabinet of Curiosities is one of the 18th century's greatest natural history achievements and remains one of the most prized natural history books of all time .
