Did you have a chance to look at the original copy of "bird of america" they have at the University of Michigan Library? I was told this is the most valuable book of the entire library. They have somebody who is turning (with infinite caution) one page per week, so visitors have a chance to look at a different page every time they come.

Take a look at

@Laurent & Wren: no, I never looked at it. I really should have, although one page a day means people will take years to finish it, right?
Imagine you missed one page and have to calculate exactly when you have to return to fill the gap.
:-))

Wren, thanks for the link!!
