Read full description of the books:



'An enchanting book' Sunday Express
Behind the public facade of any great museum there lies a secret domain: one of unseen galleries, locked doors, priceless specimens and hidden lives.
Richard Fortey, former senior palaeontologist at London's Natural History Museum, here celebrates its pioneering work - delving into the scandals and skulduggery that unfolded alongside extraordinary scientific endeavour.
This is a fascinating, affectionate account of a world of hidden treasures by a scientist who combines rigorous professional learning with a gift for prose that sparkles with wit and intellect.
'Fortey sneaks us behind the scenes with all the glee of a small child. Just like a museum you can visit the different sections in any order you choose, lingering in the places that most take your fancy. Elucidated with brilliant flair' Sunday Times
'This book is worthy of the place it tells us about, and that is a pretty lofty chunk of praise' The Times
