Dust jacket notes: "Inventorum Natura is the 20th Century's only encyclopaedia of flora and fauna that supports the theories of non-evolutionists and flat-earthers. Spontaneous generation of birds from rushes and of butterflies from creepers, ruminating unicorns and armoured dragons and more are clearly shown in vivid pictures, and explained in a Latin text with an English translation. Pliny, the supposed author of this text, was the Roman Natural Historian who died during the eruption of Vesuvius that obliterated Pompeii (79 AD). For 1900 years this work has been lost. Recently the artist Una Woodruff discovered it and, fascinated by it, undertook to illustrate it with lavish care. This book is the result; plants that are rooted in eggs and blossom with birds, butterfly-bearing ivy, fire-eyed dragons and two-headed toads are found thriving in voluptuous landscapes. The pictures will make everyone interested in natural history look at least twice."
