The focus of this large, wonderfully designed book is a striking 18th century Dutch cabinet from the Rijksmuseum’s furniture collection. With great pictures with lime paper in between (15x421x298 mm), the complete content of this magnificent cabinet are on display for the first time and in almost actual size. Several authors describe the contents of the miniature apothecary’s shop and some of the remarkable remedies it contains, as well as the artful and varied arrangements found in the drawers.

This cabinet houses a miraculous collection of curiosities including a mini-apothecary’s shop filled with over 300 jars, pots and bottles containing medicines. Concealed behind the rear wall of the cabinet, 55 secret drawers reveal a varied collection of over 2,000 naturalia specimens – including seeds, flowers, roots, resins, ores and a great deal more.

The cabinet was probably owned by a wealthy doctor or pharmacist and its contents were intended as a curiosity, for the amusement of a select group of friends, family and other collectors. 21st century readers will doubtlessly be equally impressed by this truly exceptional Dutch collector’s cabinet. In this visually stunning publication, the complete contents of this magnificent cabinet are on display for the first time and close to their true size. Several authors describe the contents of the miniature apothecary’s shop and some of the remarkable remedies it contains, as well as the artful and varied arrangements of naturalia found in the drawers.

Authors: Reinier Baarsen, Annette I. Bierman, Judith J. van der Brugge-Mulder, Gerhard C. Cadée, Paul van Duin, Roelof van Gelder, Dave van Gompe. Designed by Irma Boom
