Published late in 2012, Natural Histories offers a rare glimpse of seldom-seen, fully illustrated essays from the American Museum of Natural History's Rare Book Collection. And it's not just for armchair scientists. Included in the clamshell package are 40 prints of extraordinary illustrations, printed in quality stock, just begging to be framed. From the curation to the printing, this is a wonderfully crafted piece of science lit.
Act now if you like what you see. Natural Histories is currently available for half off its original $50 price tag, via Amazon.
