What Our Customers Say...

Description

Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding

A facsimile edition of the the original 1789 edition. 

With an added introduction and notes by the editors. 

In the publisher's original cloth binding. 

This work is compiled of letters and other materials from Gilbert White to fellow naturalists Thomas Pennant and Daines Barrington. 

The bulk of the book, The Natural History, accounts White's observations of animals and plants, such as summer birds, thunderstorms and a recurring old tortoise. 

In the second section, The Antiquities, none of the letters were actually posted, but rather written specifically for the book. In it, White discusses Selborne in various era, such as during Saxon times.
