Another day, another poor book found with some serious tape damage. Yikes! This 1698 copy of Nouveau voyage d'un pais plus grande que l'Europe... is in need of a little help. [xF352 H7] #uiowa #iglibraries #specialcollections #bookconservation #tapedamage #tapedbooks #17thcentury

Really great discovery! A pocket watch winding key circa 1675-1750 from England! Officially my oldest relic and a wonderful piece of history saved!

Huset Hornsgatan 4 - en härlig byggnad uppförd på 1640-talet (restaurerad 1907). Ett gott exempel på den tysk-holländska stilen i stockholmsarkitekturen vid denna tid. Kännetecknande är bl a de branta gavlarna med krusiduller, oftast s k broskverksornamentik. För några år sedan var jag på lägenhetsvisning här, på vån. 3-5 tr. Inredningarna var fantastiska, delvis i 1600-talsstil från sekelskiftet med paneler, bjälktak och murade spisar. Hoppas verkligen att ingen trend-dåre gått lös på dem sedan dess. 🇬🇧 No 4 Hornsgatan is a typical Stockholm house of the period 1630-50 (although this example was restored in 1907). A characteristic feature is the steep gable with Auricular style decoration. #stockholm #stockholmarchitecture #17thcentury #oldhouse #1600tal #arkitektur #hornsgatan

#Tbt to me with my #17thcentury portrait! Done by the amazing Peter Barker, this #Rembrandt tribute shows a 1660s-ish dress and white linen cap. It's nice, if odd, to be immortalised on canvas! 🎨 .
