Dr John Godman (1794–1830) was an American naturalist, anatomist, college professor and author.
Godman believed that American nature was different from that of Europe.
His work illustrated and described many people and mammals of North America. It was immensely popular as he used clear, easy to understand English.
Here are some some of his engravings for you to choose from. They were made in 1828 and are hand coloured.
