The beauty of the internet got a bit richer. Glynsky is publishing here on diablog under the label treasure chest the little treasures found in the estate of the late Sash Fisher. Of course, there are much bigger and maybe more important archives, waiting to be put online.
Last week the Royal Society, the oldest publisher of scientific news, opened its own treasure chest.
As announced in this press statement, the Royal Society put online all its old publications, everything older then 70 years.
The Royal Society cooperates with JSTOR.org. The not for profit organization, which came under a lot of criticism online after this stunt.
I already know, what I will be searching for, besides early (1665-1666) experiments on to how to cool drinks “without the Help of Snow, Ice, Haile, Wind or Niter, and That at Any Time of the Year.”
As the drinks guy on diablog, I must read this.
What is your hobby or area of interest? What do you fancy?
Happy treasure hunting,
