Links for 26 Sept.

The Harvard Gazette had a great article on the intersection of Latin and Native Americans in Harvard’s Indian College Poet.
The blog Designers and Books has a piece on the Loeb’s now iconic look.
The National and University of Iceland has a very thorough website on Abraham Ortelius’ 1590 publication of Islandia. Not only does he provide a Latin description of the island, but he also includes descriptions of the monsters shown on the accompanying map!
Interested in the Adagia Erasmi? This website also includes dozens of maps, too.
Dartmouth College has a website called From Art to Artifact. It focuses on numismatics from a 2009 seminar and is worth a look for not only interesting information but also quality images of coins and related matters.
