Bloomsbury Publishing

Bloomsbury Publishing is a comparative newcomer among natural history publishers. And comparatively fortunate - its recent growth helped by publishing the Harry Potter series.

Bloomsbury’s wildlife and natural history titles include several RSPB-sponsored titles, including the RSPB Pocket Guide to British Birds, RSPB Seabirds and the RSPB Nature Tracker’s Handbook. There is also a large number of general natural history titles by some of Britain’s best known nature writers.

Identification guides to birds, wildflowers, invertebrates, mammals, and reptiles and amphibians, in the British Isles and further afield, also form part of Bloomsbury’s well-stocked natural history catalogue.

In recent years Bloomsbury has acquired some of the most highly regarded names in British ornithology and wildlife publishing, including the famous bird books from the Christopher Helm and T & AD Poyser stables, and British Wildlife Publishing, noted for its books on invertebrates.

British Wildlife Field Guides

The strength of the British Wildlife Publishing field guide series has always been invertebrates, something long recognised by enthusiasts and recorders of bees, butterflies and other insects.
