Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder

Pronged Ants Horned Humans Mice on Toast and Other Marvels of Jurassic Techno Logy

Vintage Ser.

by Lawrence Weschler


Pronged ants, horned humans, a landscape carved on a fruit pit--some of the displays in David Wilson's Museum of Jurassic Technology are hoaxes. But which ones? As he guides readers through an intellectual hall of mirrors, Lawrence Weschler revisits the 16th-century "wonder cabinets" that were the first museums and compels readers to examine the imaginative origins of both art and science. Illustrations.
