Acerca de

Reseña del editor:

Peter the Great collected teeth. Mary Anning from Lyme Regis collected fossils. A Rothschild collected birds of Paradise, and the demented Thomas Hawkins collected dinosaur bones. In this illustrated book, Gould celebrates many such collections. He assesses their importance to natural history and science, and conveys the passionate curiosity, and often remarkable personalities, of the collectors.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
