About this book

A study of the styles of natural history illustration in America throughout the nineteenth-century. The author documents the shift from field natural history to museum and laboratory study, and the parallel shift from depicting the living animal in nature to schematic zoological illustration. The effects on 20th-century illustration are also discussed.
