Volume I treats the quadrupeds and birds, Volume II reptiles, fish, insects, and shellfish. Volume III covers plants and minerals. The b&w aquatints, by William Daniell (1769-1837), an important British landscape and marine painter and engraver, are especially interesting for their full frontal realism, if distorted scale, against dramatic backgrounds. His book on India, ORIENTAL SCENERY, is highly prized.
