All knowledge, the cosmos arranged on shelves, in cupboards, or hanging from the ceiling, 'infinite riches in a little room' - such were the cabinets of curiosities of the 17th century. This survey, now available in a compact edition, traces the amazing history of cabinets of curiosities, from their first appearance in the inventories and engravings commissioned by Renaissance nobles such as the Medici or the Hapsburgs, via those of the Dane Ole Wurm and the Italian polymath Athanasius Kircher, to the serious 17th- and 18th-century scientists Elias Ashmole and Levinas Vincent.

'Awesome ... a splendid memento mori' - Irish Times 'One of the most beautiful art books you will ever see' - World of Interiors 'Splendid' - Times Literary Supplement 'Mauries' book's splendiferous illustrations, some of which fold out to disclose shocks within, alternate the delightful and the disturbing' ' - Guardian 'Captivating ... just to read about the chaos of the cabinets, let alone look at the many beautiful images selected by Mauries, is dizzying ... Mauries offers the kind of historical unity of which the early collectors, with their wonderful curiosity and lust for affinity, would have been proud' - The Times Higher Education Supplement
