We are pleased to announce that the introductory offer on our brilliant new book, Beetles of Hertfordshire, has been extended a by a month to Friday 10 August.
However, demand for Trevor's James's ground-breaking book has already exceeded expectations, and we need to re-stock. This means that although we will continue to accept orders at the introductory price of £25 (plus £10 p&p if required), no further copies will be available for mailing or collection until after 23 July.
Written by Trevor James, the county recorder, the book provides an account of all 2,483 species of beetle so far recorded in Herts. Its publication marks the first time that all the beetles reliably recorded in a UK county have been covered in such a comprehensive way – making it a landmark for future studies.
Published in hardback in the same, attractive A4 format as our five existing wildlife atlases, the book’s 496 pages include 750 distribution maps and more than 600 colour photographs.
The special introductory price of £25 (plus p&p) provides a huge £20 saving on the recommended retail price. Click 'read more' for further details, including two launch events.
