Product Description

From the Back Cover

'A matchless handbook for decades, this classic has been the natural history bible of countless teachers and others who seek information about their natural environment. Written originally for those elementary school teachers who knew little of common plants and animals, and even less about earth beneath their feel and the skies overhead, this book is for the most part as valid and helpful to day as it was when first written in 1911.

Comstock's book is one to treasure for life, whatever your age. I fall in love with nature every time I open its pages, and it fully deserves five stars. But I am reviewing a particular printing here which is very poor: Benediction Classics, 2009. The black and white photographs are about half of the time unintelligible, just vague white and black smuts or lines with no ability to show grey. Similarly, the text printing fairly often fades to where you have to strain to read it, and occasionally guess the words. I'm only keeping this because it's hardbacked. I want my copy to last.

I am deeply disappointed.

The Handbook of Nature Study by Comstock is a wonderful book with a lot of great information. It will bring out the love of nature in everybody. Such a great book deserves to be properly published. This printing ("Benediction Classics": red cover with a chipmunk)is aweful. The pictures are hard to make out, some writing are badly printed. It looks like it was simply photocopied! Not only that, but one whole section is missing and there is no index!! There are about 200 pages missing!! I am very disappointed!!

This is a good book, just wish the page numbers corresponded with the actual book as I needed this to line up with a home school Curriculum.

HASH(0x9e0eae94) out of 5 stars One Star for the Kindle Edition July 13 2009
By Anon in Texas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My boys love this book, so I decided to try to get it for my Kindle because the larger font size makes it much easier for me to read. So I downloaded a sample, and found that they didn't even bother with a linked TOC in this HUGE book, the formatting is atrocious, and the pictures weren't included.

Keep in mind that this book is in the public domain. Ambleside Online provides links to download the book for free, and an internet search would surely provide the same. The ONLY reason to purchase this book rather than just downloading it would be to have a linked TOC, proper formatting, and the pictures.

Basically, Amazon took two minutes worth of time to download the free online text, then decided to sell it for a ridiculous price (considering what it lacks). Save your money and just download the text for free.

HASH(0x9e0e84a4) out of 5 stars Horrible quality, do not buy!! May 27 2011
By housewife deluxe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book since I loved the original version that I have checked out many times from my local library. That being said, the publisher did a horrendous job of printing this book and most of the pictures are so dark and unrecognizable that they are completely useless to the reader. The book itself is a wonderful resource, but this particular one is awful. I returned it and will be looking for another publisher's version.

HASH(0x9e0e84e0) out of 5 stars Doesn't include Part IV and graphics are awful Nov. 4 2010
By Caroline - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Don't buy this edition. It doesn't include Part IV, Earth and Sky (over 100 pages that are found in other editions). The picture quality is awful. The pictures are dark with no contrast-in many pictures you can't even tell what it is a picture of. It is looks like someone copied the original on the darkest setting, then made a copy from the copy.....awful!

HASH(0x9e17cfb4) out of 5 stars Buyer beware April 4 2011
By C. Lehenbauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not all versions have good pictures... and what good is a field guide with terrible photographs that you can't see any detail in them. The only good one that I can see is the one with the monarch butterfly stages on the cover. All else is garbage.

HASH(0x9ed79fcc) out of 5 stars worst quality April 28 2011
By aussie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This product should not be on the market or sold by you. All the pages in the book have been "copied" and the photos are almost unreadable because of poor quality! Disgusting to say the least. I returned it!!!
