A general history of quadrupeds by Thomas Bewick( Book )

3 editions published between 1811 and 1824 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late eighteenth century, the British took greater interest than ever before in observing and recording all aspects of the natural world. Travelers and colonists returning from far-flung lands provided dazzling accounts of such exotic creatures as elephants, baboons, and kangaroos. The engraver Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) harnessed this newfound interest by assembling the most comprehensive illustrated guide to nature of his day. A General History of Quadrupeds, first published in 1790, showcases Bewick's groundbreaking engraving techniques that allowed text and images to be published on the same page. From anteaters to zebras, armadillos to wolverines, this delightful volume features engravings of over four hundred animals alongside descriptions of their characteristics as scientifically understood at the time. Quadrupeds reaffirms Bewick's place in history as an incomparable illustrator, one whose influence on natural history and book printing still endures today

The history of Sumatra by William Marsden( Book )

4 editions published in 1811 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Marsden (1754-1836) spent his youth working for the East India Company in Sumatra, arriving at sixteen and returning to seek new opportunities in England at twenty-five. Through his acquaintance with Sir Joseph Banks, and his interest in oriental studies, which later led to his admittance to the Royal Society, Marsden was inspired to write an account of the island. His history was first published in 1783. Throughout his subsequent life he combined research and writing, especially on oriental languages and numismatics, and he was also First Secretary to the Admiralty at the time of the Battle of Trafalgar. Displaying a profound understanding of the local flora, fauna, history and people, Marsden provides an important account of a little-known part of Indonesia. Illustrated with botanical drawings, maps and local scenes, the third edition of 1811 is reissued here
Nouvelles observations sur les abeilles by François Huber( Book )

3 editions published in 1821 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The facts contained in this volume are deeply interesting to the naturalist. They not only elucidate the history of those industrious animals whose properties are the peculiar subject of investigation, but they present some new and singular features in physiology, which have hitherto been unknown, and even unsuspected. The industry of bees has proved a fertile source of admiration in all countries, and in every age, and mankind have unremittingly endeavoured to render it subservient either to their gratifications or emolument. Hence, innumerable theories, experiments, and observations have ensued, and uncommon patience has been displayed in prosecuting the enquiry. But although many interesting peculiarities have been discovered, they are so unaccountably interwoven with errors, that no subject has given birth to more absurdities than investigations into the history of bees; and unfortunately those treatises which are the most easily attained, and at this day, the most popular, only serve to give them a wider range, and to render it infinitely more difficult for the philosophic naturalist to eradicate them. A considerable portion of the following work is devoted to this purpose; and it belongs to the reader to judge of the success which has resulted from the experiments that have been employed"--Preface.
