A Very Old Book

On a drastically different note from yesterday, today I am writing my last paper (=torture) of the semester! At the moment, I feel abject loathing for my inconvenient habit of procrastination and for the long day/night of squeezing out a coherent paper of some intelligence from me.
If there is an upside to this final paper, it is that I was allowed to go to the Rare Books and Special Collections Library to view a book published in 1800!I held a 210 year old book! Now, to write my paper and find out what happened to La Perouse, French explorer who disappeared in 1789.

I read some XVIth century or even older documents for some of my research :D
