This classic primer ranges from the familiar Antelope, Bear, and Cat to more unusual creatures―the graceful Ibis, the aquatic Newt, the legendary Unicorn, and the powerful Xiphius, better known as the swordfish.
Originally published in the 1920s, this volume is graced with striking poster art images of every animal. Each letter is represented by a full-page color woodcut illustration. In addition to its value to young learners, the ABC Book will appeal to collectors, bibliophiles, and others who appreciate beautiful books.
