Explore the integral role illustration has played in scientific discovery through large-format reproductions of stunning works spanning five centuries.
In the days before photography, original art was the only way to capture the likeness of organisms, people, and places and share this information with others.
Created in the pursuit of scientific knowledge, the beautiful illustrations in Natural Histories accompanied important scientific publications in disciplines ranging from astronomy to zoology.
