Mark Catesby's Natural History: An Introduction
This handsome book is the perfect introduction to Mark Catesby - artist, scientist and explorer. It provides an overview of Catesby's travels as he explored southeastern North America before the land was extensively populated by Europeans. His paintings were created to show the wonders of America to the people across the Atlantic who could never travel so far. Thanks to this book and its interpretive text, we can still marvel at these pictures today.
