Friedrich J. Bertuchs »Bilderbuch für Kinder" erschien zwischen 1790 und 1830 in 237 Einzelheften mit 1.186 Kupfertafeln. Wie auch andere wissenschaftliche Werke der Zeit brachte es die neuesten Entdeckungen in die bürgerliche Lebenswelt.

Silvy Chakkalakal verbindet eine kulturanalytische Auseinandersetzung mit den erkenntnistheoretischen Debatten über sinnliche Wahrnehmung, anschauende Erkenntnis und kindliche Sehweisen. Anhand der Bilder untersucht sie den zeitgenössischen Entwicklungsgedanken der Anthropologie, Pädagogik, Naturgeschichte, Geologie und der frühen Ethnographie. Mit der Erkenntnis, dass deren Wissenschaftsgeschichte ohne Visualisierungen nicht zu verstehen ist, leistet die Untersuchung einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Bild- und Wahrnehmungsgeschichte um 1800.
