Description
Masterpieces from the first modern compilation of scientific knowledge in the field of natural history (first published at Buffon's death in 1788), a work especially treasured today for the superb quality of its engraved illustrations. The animals depicted here in their natural environment include elephant, tiger and monkey; squirrel, fox and wolf; farm animals and favorite breeds of dog and cat. Each engraving has been carefully reproduced to retain the rare quality of the original. Royalty-free.
