Catalogues and Newsletters

NHBS Catalogues

The last of our newspaper-style catalogues was published in 2004. Although these printed catalogues were incredibly popular, we found that more and more of our customers wanted access to regularly updated information via Since 2004 our website has become the main resource for information about our continually expanding book catalogue.

We still produce an annual equipment and biodiversity catalogue which is published each year in February/March. You can order our equipment catalogue or any of our other printed catalogues and price lists for free by adding them to your basket when you are signed into your account at If you don’t have an account with us, you can sign up for our equipment catalogue here, or contact Customer Services and they will be happy to arrange for one to be sent to you. All of our catalogues are free and we do not charge shipping for their delivery.

For trade customers, we produce a Trade Catalogue which is an up-to-date list of all the titles we distribute on behalf of leading conservation and scientific organisations - including BirdLife International, RSPB, The Mammal Society, British Trust for Ornithology, Bat Conservation Trust, Wetlands International and Conservation International. The Trade Catalogue is updated regularly and can be viewed online, sorted by subject and downloaded as a PDF.
