Harper Collins

There can be few people interested in wildlife who do not have a few of Harper Collins’ natural history titles somewhere on their bookshelves.

And from very British beginnings - the now familiar books on birds, plants and the countryside emerged in the war-scarred 1940s - natural history books from the Harper Collins’ stable embrace the wildlife of Britain and the wildlife of the whole world.

The Harper Collins catalogue includes the justly famous New Naturalist books, the Collins’ Black Guides - including the Collins’ Bird Guide, the most popular bird identification book used by British and European birders - and the familiar Collins’ Field Guides and Collins’ Pocket Guides.

And Harper Collins’ wildlife books have made one stand out contribution to popular culture: the (out-of-print) Birds of the West Indies by one James Bond is supposedly what inspired the name of everybody’s favourite secret agent.
