Goldsmith's Animated Nature

Oliver Goldsmith was a novelist, poet and journalist. In 1774 he published a work of natural history: “A History of the Earth, and Animated Nature" in eight volumes with the aim of bringing together a history of the earth with descriptions of its geographical features and many of its species.
