The Wonders of Animated Nature free pdf Excerpt from The Wonders of Animated Nature: Consisting of Descriptions at Large and Engraved Representations of the Principal Animals and Birds in the Royal Menageries of London and Paris In the time of Pliny, there were several valuable collections of animals in Rome, then the capital of the world. These were the property of several rich and noble Romans- and from them were written the descriptions in the well-known Natural History of that celebrated ancient. Daring the reign of Louis the Fourteenth, there was established at Versailles a menagerie, to which the work of Perrault is indebted for its origin. That institution was continued during the reign of Louis the Fifteenth- when, from the same source, in a great measure, Buffon's Natural History was given to the world. Buflbn, Linnaeus, and Daubenton, gave to the mind, a new impulse for the study of nature, and for the application of that study to purposes of public utility. In many countries of Europe, establishments were formed, which may be considered as the ground-work or models of the fourth kind of menagerie. After the fury of the Revolution had in some measure subside, the cultivators of natural history were gratified by the erection of a National Museum and Menaiserie in Paris, on a scale so grand and extensive as to demand universal applause.
