Item Details
Description
1883 Natural History Lacepede ZOOLOGY Illustrated Serpents Animals Birds Hippo

In 1749, Comte de Buffon began work on “Histoire Naturelle”, an encyclopedia-style work that was known to cover all natural sciences known to the world. It was a major undertaking, and Buffon required help from his colleagues in organizing and content production.

As a young learner, Bernard Germain de Lacépède read these early volumes and was immediately interested in the sciences. As he grew, he wrote treatises that sparked the interest of Buffon, who would become his friend and mentor. Eventually, his work on zoology, “History of Oviparity Quadrupeds and Snakes” would become a continuation, or supplement, to Buffon’s landmark work.

This beautifully bound 1883 printing is filled with in-text illustrations throughout, depicting all kinds of animals such as:

Hippopotamus
Porcupine
Rhinoceros
Lynx
Crocodile
Birds; pigeons, roadrunner, etc.
Item number: #896

Price: $350
