Victorian Eggs

The Victorians learned about all aspects of the natural world by collecting specimens for study. Although this is largely unnecessary today, and in many cases quite rightly illegal, we should not ignore their work. This is a record of historic eggs held by the Bournemouth Natural Science Society.

Below you will find a few sample pages.

80 pages large landscape 33 x 28 cm hard cover full colour throughout. 258 European species, 84 rest of the world. All approx. life size with scale and fascinating original data from as much as 150 years ago.

A print-on-demand book produced simply as a record of the eggs at the BNSS. This is an expensive form of book-making but do contact Chris for further information if interested.
