Cambridge University Press

Cambridge University Press is the world’s oldest publisher, tracing its origins to 1534 when Henry VIII permitted the university to print ‘all manner of books’.

All manner of books today includes titles such as Birds and Climate Change, which studies the impact of climate change on birds, and the likely conservation responses.

Cambridge University Press also publishes the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Assessment Reports. The Central England Temperature Record, the longest in the world, shows evidence of significant warming since the 1980s, which is matched by global trends.

The Ecology, Biodiversity and Conservation Series - serving as an example of Cambridge University Press’ natural history and natural sciences output - includes titles such as: Ecology and Control of Introduced Plants, Insect Species Conservation, Bird Conservation and Agriculture, and Biodiversity in Dead Wood.

The first Cambridge Bible was published in 1696, an octavo edition of the famous Geneva Bible, and Bibles and Prayer Books were a staple until the mid-Nineteenth Century. Among other famous books is Newton’s revised Principia Mathematica, of 1713, one of the most important scientific works ever published.  

Cambridge University Press is a contributing publisher to the Gratis Book Scheme.
