Coffee with a Codex: Natural Philosophy

On June 22, Curator Dot Porter brought out LJS 23, sections from a 13th century copy of Thomas de Cantimpré's general introduction to science, including parts of his sections on fish, insects and invertebrates, trees, cosmology and astronomy, herbs, springs, gems, wind and clouds, the four elements, stars, and eclipses. This is one of the earliest known copies of this text, possibly written during de Cantimpré's lifetime. (OPenn, BiblioPhilly, CWAC Recording)
