Book Description

A Lovely Copy of the two volume "Bell's Edition" [ see Martin p.152 ] In Demy 8vo fine half calf binding with marbled sides by Fawn & Son Bristol. A highly significant edition, not merely because of Bell's own emminence as a zoologist and his close associations with Darwin, but for his 38 year residence at White's own house "The Wakes" which particularly qualified him to write about the man & his village and includes much material not available to earlier editors. " Darwin himself claimed to have stood on the shoulders of Gilbert White who is now widely regarded as the father of the ecology movement.
Author White, Gilbert Rev. [1720-1793] Thomas Bell 1792-1880
