Summary
Ever since the creation of the world's first zoological and botanical gardens 5000 years ago, people have collected, displayed, and depicted animals and plants from lands far beyond their everyday experience. This text offers a richly illustrated journey across millennia and around the globe to explore the root of this phenomenon in art.--
