Gilbert White

£6.99

Product description

With more than two hundred editions, Gilbert White's The Natural History of Selborne is one of the most published books in the English language. An environmental study of the eighteenth-century Hampshire parish where White was born and later served as curate, the book is distinguished by the author's meticulous observations of plant and animal life--the "minute particulars"--and his uncanny sense of their interdependence. His book is both the definitive expression of the English love for countryside and a cornerstone of all environmental writing. University of Virginia Press. 2007. Paperback / softback. 239 pp. Book Condition: very good. Spine remains uncreased, pages clean and bright. free from inscriptions, annotations or underlining. One would be forgiven for thinking this is new. Almost certainly unread. In this Whitbread Prize-winning biography, Richard Mabey - whom the "Times" has called "Britain's foremost nature writer"- looks at the life of the celebrated Gilbert White, author of the The Natural History of Selbourne.
