Reseña del editor:

The Natural History Museum in London has long been a favourite destination for millions every year, from curious children to scientific researchers. Nature's Treasurehouse takes you on a whirlwind journey through the history of the Natural History Museum: the people, the influences, the discoveries and much more. It chronicles the important milestones in the development of the Museum, and brings to life the times in which they occurred, and the excitement and sometimes controversy that surrounded many of these events. Drawing on the authors' deep interest in and knowledge of the Museum, the book explores the Museum's origins, founded on the discoveries and collections of influential men like Sir Hans Sloane, as well as its vast collection of specimens and items, and its evolving role within the world of science. It describes the groundbreaking research undertaken by the Museum's dedicated staff and the array of educational, electronic and exhibition resources that have been developed and showcased over the years. All those who have visited this iconic and much-loved place will enjoy this warm, honest and sometimes whimsical account of the Museum's history and development.
