Description

Produced to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the bequest of the 13th Earl of Derby’s bird and mammal collections, upon which the Liverpool Museum was founded. Beautifully illustrated throughout, including illustrations by some of the greatest natural history painters, this catalogue is a fitting tribute to a pioneering collector who created a resource that remains hugely important in modern times.
