Sinopsis:

With this lovely and informative volume, Alan Feduccia preserves the pathbreaking work of Mark Catesby, the English naturalist and illustrator who founded natural history and bird art in America. First published by UNC Press in 1985, the book features all 109 bird illustrations, 20 color plates, and the entire text from Catesby's pioneering Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahamas. Annotating Catesby's writings from a modern perspective, Feduccia discusses the perception of each species during the Colonial period, comments on its habits, and compares Catesby's observations with those of such other early naturalists as John White, John Lawson, Alexander Wilson, and John James Audubon.

Book Description:

"Glorious. . . . Feduccia places Catesby's work within the greater context of the evolution of science itself in the colonial period. For that reason alone, this is a book that speaks to human history, natural history, Native American ethnography, geography, and cultural studies. The brilliance of this book is that Feduccia is content to stay out of the spotlight, only stepping in to provide insight, context, and color commentary when necessary."-- Southern Cultures
