Session Three of After Hours: Inside the Rare Book Collection of The New York Academy of Medicine

In this five-part series of Thursday evening sessions, we'll explore The New York Academy of Medicine's collections in the intimate setting of its beautiful rare book room, guided by two of its stewards.

Session Three: Natural Histories

Track a llama in Brazil, ogle baby whales depicted as miniature rhinos, and wonder at the transfer of chocolate from the New World to the Old in our stunning natural history collections. Even the most well-travelled explorers will discover unfamiliar places in this session, featuring highlights from the Academy's early traveler accounts, explorations and voyages.
