Mary Anning

Ho messo questa immagine di Mary rielaborata da me, perchè non mi piace per nulla l'orrido ritratto che si trova su qualsiasi motore di ricerca....intendo questo

Allora come promesso ecco i libri adatti per i ragazzi, tenete presente che sono in lingua inglese!

The Fossil Girl: Mary Anning's Dinosaur Discovery
di Catherine Brighton

molto visivo questo:

Stone Girl Bone Girl: The Story of Mary Anning
di Laurence Anholt

Rare Treasure: Mary Anning and Her Remarkable Discoveries
di Don Brown....non Dan Brown !!!

Mary Anning: Fossil Hunter

di Sally M. Walker

Per una lettura estiva...

The Dragon in the Cliff: A Novel Based on the Life of Mary Anning

di Sheila Cole

Cliccando sui titoli andrete in una pagina ove vi sono anteprime e molte informazioni sui libri.

Buona lettura!

  1. The first image is surely interesting because it depicts most accurately the Victorian fossil collectors gear, there is in fact also a sketch by Henry Thomas De la Beche of Mary Anning in the field with heavy clothing and a top hat - the google image is however an official painting of Mary and her dog Tray – it is possible that the painting was done according to the clothing standards for women at the time, ignoring the real needs in the field

  2. Thanks David for leave a comment! I completly agree with you...the portrait of De La Beche is more realistic, than the usual you can find on google! I don't like it for 2 reasons:
    1. sure Mary didn't wear so elegant clothing to search fossils
    2. she is showed old....the same thing happens usual to Darwin!
