Yesterday I received the beautiful newsletter of the Welkulturen Museum in Frankfurt, now under the direction of Doctor Clementine Deliss. A pink newsletter with the activities of the museum on one side, a poster with this great image of Baumgarten and Oppitz inside the Tropical Arborium of the Botanical Gardens in Berlin in 1972.
