I found these images and many more from this artist/biologist who lived from 1834 to 1919. He did a lot of work in the genealogy world and coined many scientific terms like "phylum" and "ecology". A lot of his art work is of flowers and other recognizable species but I am most fascinated by these drawings of sea life. Most of them are microscopic and something most of us have never seen but a few are recognizable like the hoseshoe crab and octopus. I have no idea if anyone has any use for these images but they are just so pretty to me. (I found them at the Vintage Printable Site.)
