The Natural History of Selborne with a Naturalist's Calendar and Additional Observations

Read Books, 01.11.2008 - 384 Seiten
Originally published in 1887, the author has written about the many and varied flora and fauna he has encountered on his jaunts in and around the Surrey village of Selborne, most of which is in the form of letters. It is noted that had the observer made such detailed notes on the people of this time as he did about the animals and birds, then 'we should then have had a picture of England just before the beginning of our present era, and a wonderful difference it would have shown.' Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include: Letters to Thomas Pennant Letters to The Hon. Daines Barrington A Naturalist's Calendar From The Year 1768 To The Year 1793 Observations In Various Branches of Natural History Observations on Birds Observations on Quadrupeds Observations on Insects and Vermes Observations on Vegetables Meteorological Observations
