Crossword Genius

Study of wide nature (3)


I believe the answer is:


'study' is the definition.
(term for a study or office)

'of wide nature' is the wordplay.
'of' indicates a hidden word.
'DEN' can be found hidden inside 'wide nature'.

(Other definitions for den that I've seen before include "Gentleman's study or animal's lair" , "Miserable place" , "Wild animal's home" , "Hidden lair of an animal" , "Animal's lair or gent's study" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
