In amongst the collections of one of the largest natural history libraries in the world, are some unexpected items and here’s one of my favourites:
Traditionally the Museum Library has not actively purchased natural history material aimed at younger readers, but there are some to be found within the shelves.
Entomology in Sport is an example of a publication aimed at aspiring young Victorian minds. A miniature visual world of insects has been intertwined within the words and paragraphs of this little book. Regardless of your age, you can’t help but be charmed.
