George Louis Le Clerc, Comte de Buffon (1707-1788)
  We are pleased to offer these original, hand colored etchings from George Louis Le Clerc, the Count of Buffon. A student of the Academy of Science, Buffon influenced the separation of science from theology, even before Darwin's theory of evolution. He suggested that man and ape may be connected through a scientific, common ancestry. In addition, Buffon challenged existing religious dogmas and acknowledged that new theories were needed, believing that the Earth was more than 6,000 years old. These beautiful illustrations present birds in their natural, historical backgrounds.
