“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 impressive set from the complete works of Buffon includes his treatises on the earth’s topography and geography, continents and polar regions, animals, bones and teeth, and much more!
