A short history of the Museum of Natural History, set up by the Grand Duke of Tuscany Peter Leopold in 1775, the book embraces the broader dimension of naturalistic interests in Florence. The first part traces the evolution and changes in the organisation of the Museum over two centuries of existence. The final chapters illustrate the importance of the collections and possible future developments.
