Until the mid-eighteenth century, scientific illustration in America was limited, if not virtually non-existent. This all changed when British born naturalist, Mark Catesby, became the first to illustrate a widespread collection of plants and animals in America. Catesby became well known throughout Europe and America after his publication of Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands. His publication remained the most paramount collection of scientific illustrations for nearly a century.
