Reviews


"Well made and full of high-quality, richly colored illustrations, this volume will be useful to those interested in the history of science, Latin America, scientific illustration, or the art of nature."--Choice
"Deliciously illustrated. . . . Bleichmar's lucid, scholarly text, coupled with the numerous illustrations (many of seldom-seen objects), does solidly place this publication in an academic realm. At the same time, it would be appropriate for readers who are seeking an introduction to the history or natural environment of Latin America. It is a visually stimulating production and could easily illuminate a discussion of the history of Latin American art after European contact."--Clayton C. Kirking, ARLIS/NA Reviews
