Beeches, Selborne Hanger
|The Natural History of Selborne
|Gilbert White's series of letters to Thomas Pennant Esq. and the Hon. Daines Barrington were the first, and certainly the most popular, natural history account, published in many editions since its first publication in the 18th century.
Our e-book is based upon the classic 1813 edition, and includes all of its important supplements and phenological observations.
White's vivid accounts of the natural history of the 18th century are made all the more remarkable because the village remains almost the same to this day. This is shown by the inclusion of the text of modern images of the places described by White.
Pisces Conservation are delighted to release "The Natural History of Selborne" on CD, for Windows PCs and Macs, with fully searchable text and hyperlinks for ease of navigation.
The quality of reproduction of illustrations and text is excellent. The book is in Adobe Acrobat pdf format (with free Reader software supplied), allowing high-quality printing of the text and plates.
