The good folks at the Dartmouth Digital Library Initiatives continue to offer a veritable cornucopia of printed ephemera, and this website will delight anyone with an interest in topics as wide-ranging as comics, Dr. Seuss, Russian placards, or the Arctic. Here visitors can make their way through nine digitized works, including "The Fortunes of Ferdinand Flipper." This particular item was published in the 1850s, and is widely considered to be the first comic book written in the United States. The collection here also includes Theodor Geisel's (Dr. Seuss) reflections on his early career as a young artist up to the publication of his 1937 book "And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street." Further along, visitors will find a collection of Russian placards dating from 1917 to 1922 designed by one V. Lebedev for the state news agency of Soviet Russia. Finally, the site also includes 16 volumes of the magisterial Encyclopedia Arctica, which was sponsored by the U.S. Office of Naval Research. The work was never formally published, and it documents hundreds of scientific, zoological, and geographic topics.
