And we have yet another fine post from Dr. Karl Shuker, one that begins in truly eye-opening style:
“How often is it that when pursuing one line of investigation, a second, wholly unrelated but equally interesting one presents itself and is so captivating that to ignore it would be entirely futile? So it was when I began to seek out information concerning a truly extraordinary illustration of supposed flying turtles native to Henan in China, which appeared in German Jesuit scholar Athanasius Kircher’s tome China Illustrata (1667).”
