Hi Aeron
Thankyou for including me on the sidebar, and thankyou also for introducing me to BibliOdyssey,I have found so much amazing stuff there in the last year. The one I was most pleased to find was "Flight to the Antipodes" on March 04 2007, proto science fiction illustrations from 1781, with odd erotic human/animal hybrids and strange flying devices,- I saw a couple of these illustrations about 20 years ago and now at last I get to see the whole series! All the best, Paul.
