About this book

Informative look at the so-called 'wet' specimens – those that are preserved in alcohol by natural history collectors and scientists. Rainbow and Lincoln look at the history of these specimens, their use and their preservation, and answer many questions, including what can be learnt from them and how they are used. Features images from a selection of the 22 million `wet' specimens at The Natural History Museum, London.
