The Gleanings of Natural History
Often referred as the Father of British Ornithology, George Edwards was a talented draftsman who studied both live birds and prepared specimens with an accuracy worthy of a modern scientist. As a young man serving an apprenticeship under a London merchant, Edwards became interested in studying a collection of natural history materials. He decided to abandon his career in business and devote his life instead to the observation and portraiture of wildlife.
