About this book

Ranging from diminutive hummingbirds to gargantuan elephants, this is a magnificent collection of 288 animal illustrations. The painstakingly accurate drawings first appeared between 1833 and 1845, with the serial publication of Jardine's The Naturalist's Library, a 40-volume work comprising about 1,200 drawings. Extremely popular in its day, the work went through numerous editions.
