1804 WHALES Natural History Narwhals Illustrated Lacepede Cetology Dolphins 2v In 1749, Comte de Buffon began work on "Histoire Naturelle", an encyclopedia-style work that was known to cover all natural sciences known to the world. It was a major undertaking, and Buffon required help from his colleagues in organizing and content production. As a young learner, Bernard Germain de Lacépède read these early volumes and was immediately interested in the sciences. As he grew, he wrote treatises that sparked the interest of Buffon, who would become his friend and mentor. Eventually, his work on zoology, "History of Oviparity Quadrupeds and Snakes" would become a continuation, or supplement, to Buffon's landmark work. These two volumes is a fascinating survey of cetology, or the study of whales and other large sea mammals including humpback whales, blue whales, dolphins, narwhals, and belugas.
