Why We Love This

Hand-colored engraving by Georges Buffon (1707-1788), a French naturalist. Appointed keeper of the Royal Botanical garden in 1739, he also catalogued the royal natural history collections. The undertaking grew into his comprehensive work, Histoire Naturelle; Generale et Paticuliere, from which this engraving was taken. The book was published between 1749 and 1804 and attempted to account for all known flora and fauna. He published 36 of the proposed 50 volumes before his death.
