Why We Love This

In the 19th century, there was a bit of a natural-history craze as scientists and amateurs alike strived to learn more about and document the world around them using new methods and instruments. This complete set of 12 books bound in 3/4 black leather with marbled boards reflects the times in captivating illustrated detail and descriptions. Each volume has one color illustration, and combined the set has more than 2,000 illustrations in the text. The books cover lower invertebrates, crustacea and insects, fishes and reptiles, birds, mammals, and man. Light wear to edges and corners, and one volume has warping to the binding, but overall the set is in used/very good condition.

A favorite of interior designers and set designers, Juniper Books turns the bookshelf into a work of art. From beautifully bound volumes by Dickens and Austen to cookbooks with clever custom covers, they have the classics covered in style. This collection features a wide variety of genres, so you’re sure to find a thoughtful gift for your favorite bibliophile.
