Nifty! Too bad this book wasn't yet on the shelves when I visited the museum last July.

If anyone wants a taste of the collection, here are some photos I took while I was there.
I received this book in June. it's a worthy addition to anyone's library.
Looks promising! I think I have to visit the museum store again soon. :D
