This project is now finished, and contains a fairly complete transcription of forty years of the personal journals of Gilbert White.  If you enjoy them, be sure to read his book, The Natural History of Selborne - you can download it for free from Project Gutenberg.

If you wish to see the entries for a particular day, use the search box in the upper right corner of this page.  Months should be spelled out, and days entered as plain numerals, for instance, “September 14″ if you want the aggregate for all years, or “November 1 1776″ for a specific date.Enjoy!

    Thank you for such a terrific resource. Some years ago I started a natural history blog called Natural Newstead, for an area in central Victoria, Australia where I live. The area surrounds the town of Newstead. Gilbert White’s journals have been an ispiration and guide for my work.

    All the best, geoff
