Das Buch befasst sich in Essays, Interviews und wissenschafts- geschichtlichen Dokumentationen mit den weitgehend verborgenen Sammlungsschätzen des Berliner Naturkundemuseums, insbesondere der historischen Arbeitsstelle, in der Nachlässe, Briefe, Diarien, Abbildungen und Loseblattsammlungen verwahrt werden. Der Blick der teils naturwissenschaftlichen, teils kulturwissenschaftlichen Autoren auf diese Objekte versucht sowohl den besonderen ästhetischen Reiz einzelner Objekte und Sammlungen als auch ihren museumsgeschichtlich wandelbaren Status zu begreifen.
