Inspired by the book Natural Histories: Extraordinary Rare Book Selections from the American Museum of Natural History Library, published in October 2012, this exhibition will include reproductions from more than 20 rare and beautifully illustrated scientific works. The works featured in Natural Histories span from the 16th century to the early 20th century and cover scientific disciplines from anthropology to astronomy to zoology. Reproductions of rare scientific illustrations that will be displayed in the gallery include a rhinoceros taken directly from Albrecht Durer's 1515 woodcut, lithographs of the mysterious aye-aye lemur from Sir Richard Owen's Monograph on the Aye-aye, and Robert Hooke's engraved images of what were once startling microscopic views of familiar items and animals in Micrographia.
