The Natural History of Selborne by Gilbert White


Gilbert White’s famous and seminal text of the natural life around his Hampshire home. The extraordinary detail of the natural history he described has given us, two hundred years later, a glimpse into ecosystems untouched by industry and an account of how changes in global climate can affect local weather patterns.

Introduced by James Lovelock, and illustrated throughout with Eric Ravilious woodcuts.
