“By undertaking the difficult task of locating and describing the extant Cuvier letters, most of which have never been published, Dorinda Outram has provided scholars with a valuable research tool.”

“An indispensable resource for all future study of Cuvier and his numerous correspondents.” – Bulletin of the History of Medicine “…a very useful addition to studies of early nineteenth-century French natural science.”
