George-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon

(1797-1788)

 

As a young man, Buffon studies law, mathematics, and medicine. In 1730 he made the "Grand Tour" and in 1732 he moved to Paris. His interest in the evolution of the species led him to study animals and birds in their past and present characteristics. His writings were considered to be so superior that he was asked to join the Academy Francaise. These prints are from volumes printed from 1837, 1839, 1854, and 1856.
