Top 10 Europeana objects for July

Yes, I know it is the middle of October, but holidays and the subsequent late-summer/fall travel frenzy at Europeana, have kept me very busy. Also we have updated the Europeana Portal – Yeah!

But anyway – here are the Top 10 results for July (I’ll add August and September over the following days)

1. Meisje met de Parel (Girl with the Pearl Earring) by Johannes Vermeer:
Meisje met de parel

2. Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica by Sir Isaac Newton:
Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica / 1

3. Photograph of pupils from the matriculation class at Bangalore High School in Karnataka:

4. Painting ‘Bei Osterode’:
Bei Osterode (Harz);Pejzaż z okolic Osterode am Harz

5. a lapel pin from a Czech (?) chemical factory from the year 1973:

6. a picture of Dutch water-ski champion Willy Stahle:

7. a map of London City, dated 1633:

8. a travelogue about Sicily, Malta and Italy by Jean Houel, from 1782:

9. what looks like a family snapshot of German musicologists Ronald Nauenburg and Carmen Rosenthal and their daughter Elisabeth. If I’m not mistaken the daughter can also be found here on YouTube:

10. an image of the Dutch royal regalia: crown, scepter and Globus cruciger (‘rijksappel’):
Inhuldiging koningin Juliana. Regalia. De Nederlandse kroon, scepter en rijksappel vervaardigd voor de inhuldiging van koning Willem II in 1840 en sindsdien bij alle inhuldigingsplechtigheden gebruikt. De kroon, scepter en rijksappel worden niet gedragen, maar liggen tijdens de Inhuldigingsplechtigheid uitgestald op de zgn. credens-tafel voor het troonplatform in de Nieuwe Kerk

As usual many old friends in the Top 5, and a few surprising appearances below there.
