Article

John Edwards Holbrook (December 30, 1794 hasta september 08, 1871) .Zoolologo of North American doctor and naturalist, was born in Beaufort, South Carolina

Presented the first comprehensive illustrated amphibians and reptiles of North America by the two editions of North American Herpetology: or a Description of the Reptiles inhabiting the United States ("North American Herpetology: o Description of the reptiles inhabiting the United States ").

The first edition in four volumes (1836-1840) is very rare because Holbrook attempted to destroy all copies in a bonfire in the backyard by unfavorable criticism of the illustrations in color.

The second edition in five volumes (1842) was better received and remains an important reference work.

 Then species Scaphiopus holbrookii  and Diplodus  holbrookii  were named in his honor.
