Whitby Naturalists' Club: Digital Library

Within the Club Library there are many books, papers and other publications specifically about natural history in the Whitby area. Work has begun to digitize those which are either so old as to be out-of-copyright or where permission has been granted by the copyright owner. Hyperlinks to downloadable digitized versions of these works will be placed on this page as they become available.
