Sir William Jardine

1800-1874

THE NATURALIST LIBRARY

One of the finest publications of natural history in the 19th century was supervised by Sir William Jardine. As editor of the Naturalists Library, Jardine commissioned experts to write volumes on their fields of animal studies. From 1833-1842 forty volumes were published on birds, fish, insects, mammals and reptiles each containing appr.30 engravings by William Home Lizars (1788-1859). These engravings are considered to be among the finest of their kind and were always colored by artists before publication.
