Illustrating Cuba's Flora and Fauna

Juan Lembeye Lartaud

The first and only book of bird illustrations to be published in Cuba was Aves de la Isla de Cuba by Spaniard Juan Lembeye. Lembeye lived in Cuba from the 1830s to the 1860s, and became interested in birds while he was there. His book was published in Havana in 1850. It became one of the best-known works on Cuban natural history; several of the illustrations were reproduced in cigar wrappings and in souvenir ceramic plates.
