Natural Histories Exhibition, American Museum of Natural History, New York

If a bizarre new species were discovered, would you want to see it? Fortunately, you could: on TV, on the Internet, in newspapers, and in magazines. But before modern technology, curiosity was not so easily satisfied. As European explorers came into contact with fascinating animals, plants, land formations and human cultures, their descriptions made the public back home yearn for a glimpse. Illustrated books, like those featured in the exhibition, provided a window.
