Voyages of Discovery is a mesmerising visual record of ten of the world's most significant natural history expeditions. Among the many stories of adventure and great scientific endeavour are: Sir Hans Sloane's journey to Jamaica; Maria Sibylla Merian's personal sojourn in Surinam; James Cook's perilous Pacific crossings; William Bartram's fanciful yet detailed documentation of North American wildlife; Matthew Flinders' mapping of Australia accompanied by perhaps the greatest of all the natural history artists Ferdinand Bauer, and Charles Darwin's fateful Beagle voyage.Hand-picked from the vast Library of the Natural History Museum, London, the illustrations and artworks contained here form a rare collection, many of which have only been published in this stunning book.
