Eventually the snow will melt – I sigh, for you it may be a hurrah. This was 14 days ago, and would be very surprised if we would see more snow – after all, this is California!
You may not become as known as Martin Luther King, or Einstein who influenced thousands of people, but something like the following is in the reach of any blogger:)
The flap on the back side gave the history of this journal cover, I came across in the store of the Sutro Baths, San Francisco. All quotes.
Albertus Seba’s Locupletissimi Rerum Nauralium Thesuari reveals the fusion of art and science. Internationally renowned in the eighteenth century, almost 300 years later, Seba, his collection and his book still have a significant influence on scientific study and engagement.
Seba reached an agreement with two publishing houses to produce a four volume work, comprising 400 illustrated plates of his collections. The illustrations would accompany text, on editions in Latin and French, and another in Latin and Dutch, to achieve the widest possible audience. The first two volumes were largely written my Seba himself with other naturalists, and published in 1735.
In 1736 Seba died and the final two volumes of his work were edited and completed by his colleague Arnout Vosmaer and other friends during 1759-1765. (www.guadrille.com;

Think of it. A. Seba published these four volumes in 1735 with the help of his friends.
If the sky was the limit in 1735, what is holding you back in 2017?
Your turn! Snow or not:)
