The Kingdoms of Science



BibliOdyssey is always full eclectic book art. Just what you need to achieve your geek fix for today.  Behold the illustrations from  ‘Dictionnaire Classique Des Sciences Naturelles’ [1853] by PAJ Drapiez.

Drapiez’s ‘Dictionnaire Classique Des Sciences Naturelles’ is ostensibly an homage to the evolving scientific literature of the Enlightenment and the author was generous enough to underline the point in the title page by saying that his classical dictionary summarised the works of “Buffon, Daubenton, Lacépède, Cuvier, de Jussieu., Etc., Etc”
