[45190] The New Naturalist [volumes 1-139] with all New Naturalist Monographs.
$20000
The 'New Naturalist' series has been continuously published since the first volume in 1945. Subjects are primarily British and most of the contributing authors are the leaders in their specialised fields. Apart from high quality texts, New Naturalists are distinguished by the original dustwrapper designs of Clifford and Rosemary Ellis, with the style being continued by other artists such as Robert Gilmour. Print runs are usually small and many volumes are highly collectable. New Naturalists can be best described as the 'modern firsts' of natural history book collecting.
