Wonders and Blunders

3/21/2020 - 10/04/2020
The Durham Museum

Omaha, NE 68108

Books and manuscripts will be on display from the Byron Reed Collection to showcase the fantastical designs of early natural history textbooks and travel stories. Scientifically precise drawings of insects with gilded gold wings fill books on the flora and fauna of North America and details abound in the stories brought back by Lewis and Clark of the magnificent bears found across the American West. Yet, it is not all what it seems. Modern readers can look back to these works and see stereotypes or wildly outlandish claims not rooted in science or fact. Today we have the benefit of looking back, but one day our current natural history guides might be in an exhibit of their own.
