A Museum Of Wonders

Here is "A museum of wonders and what the young folks saw there : explained in many pictures" created by Frederick Burr Opper, published in 1884.
See the full exhibit here.

I'll be posting more interesting books I find in the George A. Smathers Libraries collection over the next week. There's an insane amount of bizarre old books in there with thousands of fascinating illustrations waiting to be discovered. If you find something that stands out in there let me know about it.
