Why We Love This

Set of four hand-colored engravings by Georges Cuvier (1769–1832). As a young adult, Cuvier took a position as tutor to a noble family in Normandy where he also made a reputation for himself as a naturalist. In 1795, Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire invited him to come to Paris where he was appointed as a professor of animal anatomy at the newly reformed Musée National d'Histoire Naturelle. Cuvier lectured and researchedat the Musée National, amazing his colleagues with his energy and devotion to science.
