About this Book: A Curious Tsar: Peter the Great and Discovering Nature’s Secrets in Amsterdam is the catalogue of an exhibition in The Ritman Library highlighting Peter the Great’s interest in Wunderkammer or Cabinets of Curiosities as a reflection of his wider interest in the study of nature; perceptions of Peter the Great as a Man with a Mission, and the alchemical library of the Tsar’s personal phyisician Robert Erskine.
