The Great Naturalists is a fascinating book, with exquisite illustrations that explains the development of the study of natural history as seen through the lives, observations and discoveries of nearly forty great naturalists, from Classical times to the end of the 19th century. 

The book tells the story of the ideas surrounding this study, from pioneers such as Aristotle, Linnaeus and Darwin to less recognised but important figures  all figures nonetheless who have contributed massively to our knowledge of the natural world, enabling us to understand and appreciate it today.
