Bloomsbury Publishing acquires Natural history list from New Holland Publishers

Bloomsbury announces today that it has acquired the natural history list from New Holland Publishers. New Holland’s established, wide-ranging list of over 200 titles will be integrated into Bloomsbury’s existing natural history list. The acquisition of the New Holland titles will further cement Bloomsbury’s position as a global publisher in the natural history field.

Bloomsbury’s natural history list includes the Christopher Helm ornithology list, the T&D Poyser imprint and the market-leading RSPB books. The many long-term bestsellers include Whales, Dolphins and Seals, Wild Flowers of Britain & Ireland, Owls of the World and the groundbreaking 6-volume Mammals of Africa by Jonathan Kingdon. Current digital innovation for the list includes reissuing the 40-strong Helm Field Guides series as enhanced ebooks with bird sounds.

The New Holland list includes books by Steve Backshall, Bill Oddie, Chris Packham and Mark Carwardine, a series of photographic guides covering birds and wildlife throughout the world, a new series of Pocket Guides to British wildlife, and a well established series of Wildlife Trust Concise Guides.

Nigel Redman, Head of Natural History for Bloomsbury comments: “I am delighted to welcome the New Holland list into Bloomsbury. Their titles complement the Bloomsbury natural history imprints perfectly and together form the world’s largest list of natural history books”.
