Due to a problem with the new “two-way authorization” security option, which I activated last week, I can no longer log on to my Tumblr account. The problem is that I am not receiving the SMS with the needed code. At present my only way into the account is via my mobile, which still happens to be logged in – for now.
This issue explains why my posts are at present infrequent, or why they may temporarily stop. While Tumblr was quick to reply to my initial query for help, they have stopped responding to emails. If you know how to “force” the system to send me a new code via SMS, or if you have heard of similar issues, please contact me. It is extremely frustrating that I am unable to show you things medieval - other than typing posts on my phone.
These wonderful, and sometimes fantastic, images of marine animals come from Adriaen Coenen’s Visboek (FishBook), which he published in 1560 (Koninklijke Bibliotheek, 78 E 54). A fisherman, Coenen gathered all information he could find on the sea and its coasts, coastal waters, fishing grounds and marine animals, which he described in more than 800 pages.
