The first illustrated record of the flora and fauna of North America - Catesby's distinguished masterpiece The Natural History of Carolina, Florida & the Bahama Islands - has been reproduced as a limited edition and was published to mark the 300th anniversary of the arrival in 1712 of naturalist and artist Mark Catesby in the New World.
