about

This handsome gift volume celebrates a world-famous temple to taxidermy and the natural world, where extraordinary curiosities highlight the intersection of science and art. With an abundance of preserved flora and fauna, taxidermy, and otherworldly creations, the Deyrolle boutique is dedicated to showcasing the beauty of nature. A family venture founded in the spirit of discovery, Deyrolle has a 185-year history that is a Pandora’s box of scientific and aesthetic discoveries. Deyrolle flourished under the nineteenth-century passion for natural history, garnering celebrity devotees from Dalí to Nabokov, and quickly established itself as a center for education and research.

A vocal advocate of sustainability and responsible business practices in the fields of taxidermy and entomology, Deyrolle works only with creatures that have expired from natural causes. Raising awareness for causes such as World Rhino Day, Deyrolle combines science and art, lightheartedness and engagement. This book provides fascinating insight into the history and day-to-day workings of this unique Parisian institution.
Prince Louis Albert de Broglie created the Le Prince Jardinier brand in 1995, which offers high-quality garden tools and accessories, natural-textile clothes made in France, decorative objects, table- and picnicware, and furniture collections.
