“Virtually all the well-known writers of the Enlightenment were ‘Buffonians’”

― Ernst Mayer

 

The monumental work by Comte de Buffon, “Histoire Naturelle,” was fascinating 18th-century collection of articles and encyclopedia entries on material sciences, physics, chemistry, technology, as well as the history of animals. Buffon wrote the volumes with the intent of addressing all-natural history, but after realizing the grandeur of the work, he focused on the individual orders of living things. The DSB mentions that

“Buffon’s order is formed by a philosophical bias rather than by science.”

 

This beautiful five-volume German example features 17 impressive hand-colored engravings depicting the development of humankind and the human form!
