This quote comes from page 52, which is close enough. This quote is talking about Jeanne Villepreux-Power “the mother of aquariophilly.” I reviewed this book earlier in the week, so you can check out the review HERE
“The newly minted naturalist knew that there was only so much one could learn by plucking a creature from its briny environment. So in 1832 she invented a container that would facilitate her observations by keeping aquatic creatures alive in their own ecosystem—even while extracted from the ocean. She designed a glass case, the first recognizable aquarium.”--Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science and the World by Rachel Swaby
