Kircher Society Essential Library of Automata

If you're not already acquainted with The Proceedings of The Athanasius Kircher Society, I highly recommend adding it to your blog links. It's... eclectic in the most wonderful way. From Death Masks, Vladimir Demikhov's medical experiments, mortal remains, underground caverns and a host of the weird, wonderful and unusual can be found in its pages.

Recently a link of interest to Miss Cornelia and Mr. Hassanov (and Mr. Chaplin were he still with us) was the Essential Library of Automata.

Listing 10 books on historical Automata, there is enough material of interest to either the historian, the toy collector or the robot aficionado.
