The Natural History of Selborne (The World's Classics)
coverThe Natural History of Selborne (Penguin Nature Classics Series) by Gilbert White, Richard Mabey, Edward Hoagland (Introduction).  

Gilbert White's beautifully written evocation of the natural world of Selborne based on his correspondence with two distinguished naturalists of the day has endured in popularity since its first publication in 1788-9. Suggesting that the lives of birds and animals have their own richness and rhythm, White's book, more than any other, has shaped our everyday view of the relations between humans and nature.  

One of the most perfectly realized celebrations of nature in the English language, The Natural History of Selbourne (1789) captures the "minute particulars" of daily life in an eighteenth century Hampshire parish.

Gilbert White's House and Selborne 
From the Hampshire County Council.  

Excerpt:

The attractive village of Selborne and its beautiful countryside is famous for its association with the 18th century naturalist Gilbert White. In his book The Natural History of Selborne, he meticulously records his observations on the plants, birds and animals of this lovely part of Hampshire.

The Reverend Gilbert White (1720-1793) is regarded as England's first ecologist. He lived at "The Wakes" most of his life. The rooms have been furnished in the 18th century style and include items of his furniture, beautifully embroidered bed hangings and portraits of his family. The original manuscript is also on display.
