About this item
Superb artworks and photographs spanning three centuries document advances and watersheds in the field of natural science. The stories behind these images—of explorers, naturalists, artists and photographers—entwine into a fascinating study of human achievement and natural wonder. Among the many stories of adventure and great scientific endeavour are: Sir Hans Sloane’s journey to Jamaica in 1687; James Cook’s perilous Pacific crossings; and Darwin’s historic voyage aboard HMS Beagle. Hand-picked from the vast Library of the Natural History Museum, London, the illustrations and artworks contained here form a rare collection, most of which have been presented for the first time in this stunning book.
