The National Library of Medicine has striking virtual versions of Conrad Gessner’s Historiae Animalium and Ouevres now online (as well as a couple of others). (You can read more about this “father of bibliography” here.) The technology behind the Gessners is called Turning the Pages. There’s a short Microsoft commercial video about it here and a more detailed Microsoft ad description here. Very book. Via Metafilter.
