Early wildlife recordings

Number of items in collection: 268

Short description:

Recordings in this collection can be played by anyone.

This collection presents an assortment of species and habitat recordings that were produced during the first half of the twentieth century when wildlife sound recording was still in its infancy. The majority of these recordings were originally released on gramophone records, presented in box sets and accompanied by illustrated literature that provided the listener with information about the animals they were hearing, possibly for the very first time.
