Natural history has always relied heavily on books to help it develop and gain momentum. Without a way of defining and categorizing the many thousands of species of plants and animals, the subject could not exist as it does today. In the latest book from the New Naturalist series, David Allen explores the world of nature publishing from its very early days, through various significant new discoveries and up to the publication of the New Naturalist series itself. The book highlights the extraordinary personal stories behind many seminal works. Natural history is an area that is constantly developing and improving as our own understanding of the world develops, and this fascinating book shows that publishing is always ready to record and present this to its readers.
