The Natural History Museum, London is home to one of the world's most important and comprehensive collections of natural history specimens, literature and artworks. This book is a celebration of over 200 of the Museum's most exceptional possessions including world-famous specimens and little-known curiosities. The treasures are selected both from objects on display and those stored behind the scenes. Each one is chosen for its scientific importance, striking beauty or intriguing story - and sometimes all three. Among the many exceptional natural wonders featured are: a rare meteorite from Mars; Darwin's celebrated finch specimens; a lethal claw from the dinosaur Baryonyx; one of the first forms of life on Earth; and, some immaculately dressed fleas. The book also includes the magnificent Museum building itself with its many architectural treasures. With intriguing stories behind each entry, """"Treasures of the Natural History Museum"""" is a fascinating insight into the best of the Museum's unrivalled collections.
