We think these are the perfect gift for the wildlife enthusiast - there are over 40 books in the series so far, covering mammals, birds, insects and fish… not to mention the odd crustacean and mollusc! Each book in the series takes a different animal and examines its role in history around the world. The importance of mythology, religion and science are described as is the history of food, the trade in animals and their products, pets, exhibition, film and photography, and their roles in the artistic and literary imagination.
“Part cultural history, part folklore, part history of science and reference books, these works gracefully traverse time, place and disciplinary approaches to explore a single animal’s place in human history. Replete with images and written in an accessible style, they are sure to appeal to a range of audiences.” – British Journal for the History of Science
