Cuvier, Baron George: Discourse on the Revolutions... V1, 20 June 2011
Jean Léopold Nicolas Frédéric Cuvier (August 23, 1769 – May 13, 1832), known as Georges Cuvier, was a French naturalist and zoologist. Cuvier was a major figure in natural sciences research in the early 19th century, and was instrumental in establishing the fields of comparative anatomy and vertebrate paleontology through his work in comparing living animals with fossils. He established animal extinctions as a fact, and was the most influential proponent of catastrophism in geology in the early 19th century. His most famous work is the Le Règne Animal (1817; English: The Animal Kingdom). In 1819, he was created a peer for the life in honor of his scientific contributions. Thereafter he was known as Baron Cuvier.
This epub is from the 1831 American edition translated from the 3rd French edition. It is based on a shorter introduction to Cuvier's <i>Recherches sur les ossemens fossiles des quadrupèdes</i> (Research on the Fossil Bones of Quadrupeds)of 1812. Source of the epub was GoogleBooks, supplemented with figures and several missing Google pdf text pages, photographed with a Nikon SLR from a paper copy of the American edition.
