Brehms Tierleben

Brehms Tierleben (Brehm’s Life of Animals) is a multi-volume zoological work by Alfred Brehm and others, published in various editions from 1863.

German digital editions of this work exist, and some images can be found on Wikimedia Commons. An 1895 English edition can be found on archive.org.

The many pictures of animals in their natural habitat make this a zoological milestone, and it has been called “one of the most renowned works of zoology.” It’s well worth a look!
