    Some scholars propose that this was "a reaction against the dogmatism and enthusiasm of the English Civil War and Interregum [sic]. Did he hope, in that lost way we writers have, that by encouraging this little bit of wonder and love for the tiny locals, he might help to save them?

The book starts with a Mikal Kronos returning home after creating a huge, fantastic clock for the prince of Bohemia. Petra rubbed at the grit in the corner of her eye. The catalog of Worm's collection, published as the Museum Wormianumused the collection of artifacts as a starting point for Worm's speculations on philosophy, science, natural history, and more.

Ashmole's donation formed the foundation of the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford. And if a gentle influence could have saved them, it would have been this one, for clearly, Mr. She jogged down the stairs with unnecessary force. They could play only in the shop, and only during the day when someone could keep an eye on them.
