These colorful curiosities are a faithful reproduction of the “Naturalist’s Pocket Library,” a series created during the late 19th and early 20th century by Paul Klincksieck and a collection of specialists in their various fields. Each features a different collection of natural phenomena, carefully cataloged with detailed illustrations and a vast array of scientific knowledge and practical advice. Many feature plates originally colored by chromolithography, a printing process that required no fewer than five passes on the press. All text is in French.
