Gilbert White and his records : a scientific biography by Paul G. M Foster( Book )

The natural history of Selborne by Gilbert White( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a compilation of 44 letters from White to zoologist Thomas Pennant, and 66 letters to Daines Barrington, a member of the Royal Society along with White. The original edition also included 26 letters on the antiquities, but it is his Natural History that has become an indispensable part of the Western Canon. White used these letters to document his meticulous observations of birds, plants and animals in the countryside around his home, at Selborne in Hampshire. He is often considered England’s first ecologist. This work is a classic not only for its value as an Enlightenment study of landscape and nature, but even more so for it being a great piece of literature, written in a style that is timeless, providing an atmosphere that is unmatched in its ability to pull the reader into the tranquil world around White’s home in the 18th century English countryside"--Books and Vines

The use of imaginary, historical, and actual maps in literature : how British and Irish authors created imaginary worlds to tell their stories (Defoe, Swift, Wordsworth, Kipling, Joyce, Tolkien, etc.) by John Wyatt( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this text, the author highlights unrecorded discoveries about how maps and literature are associated. Not only do maps give us a tool by which to understand a physical reality as it actually exists, but maps can support the realm of literary fiction - such as Tolkien's Middle Earth, or Stevenson's Treasure Island. There are also maps that try to catch a certain historical moment like an urban space at a particular time period, or a rural environment. While maps had historically guided travel, in literature they provide an escape mechanism that transports the audience to an unfamiliar place
