EYE OF THE LYNX, THE - GALILEO, HIS FRIENDS, AND THE BEGINNINGS OF MODERN NATURAL HISTORY

Years ago, David Freedberg stumbled across a group of drawings by the little-known Academy of Linceans, a seventeenth-century Italian group that took as its task nothing less than the pictorial documentation of all of nature. Moving across Europe, he encountered thousands of such drawings--of fossils, the species of the New World, or the heavenly bodies studied by the group's most famous member, Galileo Galilei. Profusely illustrated and engagingly written, this book reveals this crucial momentin the development of natural history.
