Caption: Eurasian shrew (Sorex araneus), 19th-century artwork. This insectivorous mammal is also known as the common shrew. This plate is from a collection of pencil sketches and watercolours of British mammals by British naturalist and explorer Edward Adrian Wilson (1872-1912). This artwork is dated 1895, when Wilson was a student at Cambridge University (hence the 'Camb. painting' note). The note also refers to The Crippetts, a favourite area in the Cotswolds where Wilson grew up and where he would sketch his observations of nature. Wilson died on the British Antarctic Expedition led by Robert Falcon Scott.
