The Nature Classics Library is dedicated to reviving some of the classic and all too often forgotten books about nature and rural life in the British Isles.

The Dorset-based Little Toller imprint was started to bring some of the most famous works of writing and illustration on the British countryside to a modern audience - more than achieved by this lovingly produced series. With titles such as WH Hudson’s masterful A Shepherd’s Life from 1910, to Richard Mabey’s 1970s take on urban nature in his The Unofficial Countryside, there is something for everybody.

These books are redolent with some of the British countryside’s deepest impulses; fittingly Toller is a river valley in Dorset recorded in Domesday and derived from the Celtic for a stream in a hollow valley.
