Created as part of the University of Cincinnati's Digital Collections initiative, the Oesper Collections bring together rare and curious items from the long and storied past of chemistry. In the Apparatus Museum area, visitors can look over unique items including flasks, adapters, clamps, condensers, corks, and much more. The Virtual Tour is truly astonishing and visitors can take a variety of 360-degree views among some of the most remarkable items in this archive. Moving on, the Books & Journals area contains wonderful treasures and writings from Sir Humphry Davy, Antoine Lavoisier, and Joseph Priestly. The site is rounded out by a series of Museum Notes, which highlight various personages who have been featured in these collections over the years.
