About this Item

Described by Julain Huxley. Recorded by Ludwig Koch. Photographed by Ylla. London: Country Life Ltd. (1938). Quarto, cloth (lacks dust wrapper). 62 pages, plus two 78 rpm records. Endleaves browned, and spine gently faded, but still a very good copy. First Edition. One of the earliest publications containing the work of noted animal photographer Ylla (born Camilla Koffler, 1911-1955). "This is not merely a book about animals with records of their cries, it is a real sound-book conceived as a whole, the result of more than a year's collaboration between author, recorder, and photographer. It is the first mammal sound-book in the English language." ".The object of this sound-book in particular is to bring us to a clearer understanding of the sounds and cries of animals and the part they play in animal life." (Publisher's Note).
