Rear cover a bit creased, otherwise scarcely used. This book serves to remind us how much museums have changed in the last 25 years. The (then) BM(NH), now The Natural History Museum, holds a huge diversity of collections and this book attempts, quite successfully, to show how they are used and cared for. It takes the reader behind the scenes to show some unusual activities, such as the mensuration of a semi-naked Faeroe Islander, while serving up a potted history of the study of natural history and what we now call biodiversity. 128 pp., well illustrated in colour.
