Deyrolle - Paris - France

May I recommend:

1000 Degrees Celsius Deyrolle
 by Laurent Bochet

Deyrolle is an old establishment since 1831 which, was founded by entomologist Jean-Baptiste Deyrolle.

Its proprietor today is Prince Louis Albert de Brogliealso known as Prince Jardinier - The tomato Prince -  he grows approximately 650 varietes om his estate - Chateau de la Bourdaisiere, in the Loire Valley. He revived Deyrolle in 2001 when he refurbished it and brought it back to its 18th-century condition.  Deyrolle is one of the world's greatest taxidermy establisments.

Deyrolle - Rue de Bac - Paris -  February 2008
 The stuffed menagerie was destroyed by fire.

A second death for the animals...

Photographer Laurent Bouchet was able to freeze this moment of sadness and disaster in time...

As an artist/photographer he created -  beauty - rising from the ashes.
