I work with rare books on fish from the early modern period as as a PhD researcher at Leiden University in the NWO funded programme “A New History of Fishes” and as a Rare Book Specialist at Rare Fish Books. On this blog I post snippets of my research and anecdotes relating to the books I encounter on a day to day basis.
