Mark Catesby's "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands" was the first published account of the flora and fauna of North America. Using touchscreen technology, visitors to the Sterling Morton Library are able to "page" through our 3rd edition published in 1771. His splendid artwork depicts the mammals, birds, reptiles, insects and plants of the region. Stop by Tales and Treasures to learn more about Catesby's remarkable work and story!
