Description


Birds presents the rare and compelling drawings of influential naturalist Georges-Louis Leclerc de Buffon, the founder of the Museum of Natural History in Paris and a man who prefigured John James Audobon, John Gould, and Alexander Wilson as the founding father of ornithology. Only four sets of Buffon's ambitious 36-volume illustrated opus survive to the present day, making this reproduction of his bird drawings from Histoire Naturelle, Generale et Particuliere an historical and invaluable endeavor. Collins Design's Mini Archive series brings Buffon's work to the public for the first time in this handsomely illustrated book and its accompanying DVD, delivering an invaluable resource for anyone passionate to embrace the beauty of the natural world.
