Natural History

In the natural history department, we focus on the great flower and bird books of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, particularly the work of artists such as Audubon, Catesby, Elliott, Gould, and Redoute. These books are not only works of art in their own right, but also provide a valuable record of many species sadly extinct.
