Offering - any one interested in Natural History archives?
In the library we have a quantity (perhaps a brief case full) of duplicates of these from the early 20thC. It appears we inherited them from the Ovenden Naturalists when they folded.
We need funds, and would welcome purchase offers, or offers of help selling them.
Does anyone perhaps enjoy selling things on line?
Just like the HSS, the Yorkshire Naturalists Union was at this time interested in archaeology, and the only photographs in this edition are of bronze axes unearthed in Yorkshire. It was after all well before the era of wildlife photography.
They are a fascinating read, with birds, taxidermy, egg collecting, mammals and the problem of shooting much discussed.
