Chasing absinthe - in the name of research

The world is full of information and it's waiting to be discovered or re-discovered. Libraries, museums, galleries - you name it. There are so many places where references of absinthe can be found - deliberate or not. In my research on absinthe I go to several places to find information. Sometimes I find what I'm looking for, sometimes not. Either way it's practically always something new learned from where ever it may be. This is where I have collected some of those travels.
