The British Museum (Natural History)

By: Whitehead, Peter & Keates, Colin

Price: £6.00

Publisher: Scala / Philip Wilson: 1981

Edition: 1st edition in paperback

Seller ID: 2240

ISBN: 0 85667 108 8

Condition: V.g.


Rear cover a bit creased, otherwise scarcely used. This book serves to remind us how much museums have changed in the last 25 years. The (then) BM(NH), now The Natural History Museum, holds a huge diversity of collections and this book attempts, quite successfully, to show how they are used and cared for. It takes the reader behind the scenes to show some unusual activities, such as the mensuration of a semi-naked Faeroe Islander, while serving up a potted history of the study of natural history and what we now call biodiversity. 128 pp., well illustrated in colour.

A taxonomically wide-ranging survey of the wildlife of an area of 490 sq. km around Sheffield, an ecologically diverse area encompassing both the post-industrial landscape of a former steel-making city and the limestone and gritstone uplands of North Derbyshire. The editor, formerly Curator of Natural History at Sheffield Museum, has assembled a good team of contributors; the entomology in particular is very well covered, the botany less so.
