Empire's nature : Mark Catesby's new world vision( Book )

"Completed in 1747, Mark Catesby's Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands was the first major illustrated publication on the flora and fauna of Britain's American colonies." "Inspired by a major traveling exhibition of Catesby's watercolor drawings from the Royal Library, Windsor Castle, this collection of interdisciplinary essays considers Catesby's endeavors as a naturalist-artist, scientific explorer, experimental horticulturist, ornamental gardener, and early environmental thinker in terms of the interests held by the various overlapping communities in which he functioned - particulary as those interests related to the British colonial enterprise."--Jacket

Containing images of birds, animals, fish, reptiles, insects and plants, this 18th-century work is the first published account of the flora and fauna of North America. Its 220 plates were produced by English naturalist Mark Catesby, who settled in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1722 and spent the next four years traveling up and down the North American coast and to various islands in the Caribbean. After returning to England in 1726, Catesby spent 17 years engraving his work's various illustrations. Celebrated for his expressive, unique style, Catesby's work remains an important contribution to zoology and taxonomy
