Scientist and historian Tim Flannery, in collaboration with internationally acclaimed wildlife artist Peter Schouten, catalogs 104 creatures that have vanished from the face of the earth since 1492. From the tiny Carolina parakeet to the majestic Steller's sea cow, which was over twenty-five feet long and weighed ten tons, all of these animals have become extinct as a direct result of the European expansion into every corner of the globe. Flannery evocatively tells the story of each animal: how it lived and how it succumbed to its terrible destiny. Accompanying each account is a beautiful color representation (life-size in the original painting) by Schouten, who has devoted years of his life to this extraordinary project. Animals from every continent are represented -- American passenger pigeons, Tasmanian wolves, and African blaauwboks -- in this homage to a lost Eden. This extraordinary book is at once a lament for the lost animals of the world and an ark to house them forever in human memory. Very scarce Australian edition. Illustrator: Peter Schouten.

Item Description: New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, (2001)., 2001. Quarto, blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 184 pp. Fine (As New) and Near-Fine dust jacket with slight soiling. From dust jacket: Since humanity, first wandered from its African birthplace over fifty millennia ago, it has radically altered the environment everywhere it has settled, once at the cost of the creatures that ruled the wild before its arrival. As our prehistoric ancestors spread throughout the globe, they began the most deadly epoch the planet's fauna have experienced since the demise of the dinosaurs. And following the dawn of the age of exploration five hundred years ago, the rate of extinction has accelerated ever more rapidly. In A Gap in Nature, scientist and historian Tim Flannery, in collaboration with internationally acclaimed wildlife artist Peter Schouten, catalogues 103 creatures that have vanished from the face of the earth since Columbus first set foot in the New World. From the colorful Carolina parakeet to the gigantic Steller's sea cow, Flannery evocatively tells the story of each animal and its habitat, how it lived and how it succumbed to its terrible destiny. Accompanying every entry is a beautifully rendered color representation by Schouten, who has devoted years of his life to this project. His portraits -- life size in their original form, are exquisitely reproduced in this extraordinary book and include animals from every continent: American passenger pigeons, Tasmanian tylacines, Mauritian dodos, African bluebucks, and dozens more. Lavishly illustrated, profoundly poignant, and endlessly fascinating, A Gap in Nature is an unforgetable book, at once a lament for the animals we have lost and an ark to house them forever in human memory.
