About this Item

From 1961. 16 volumes. Yellow cloth boards with blind stamped gilt lettering to front boards with colour illustration panels. Similar to spine strips. Title pages also state 'The strange and wonderful ways of mammals, birds, reptiles, fishes and insects. A new and authentic natural history of the wild life of the world'. Towards the back of each volume are 'Special features on green paper: exploring nature with your child'. Volumes include colour and black and white photos plates and black and white illustrations. Volume 16 includes an index. 2,069 pages for main text. 408 pages of the 'special features on green paper'. Foxing/ spotting to some pages (a lot to a very few) but most pages unaffected. Binding is quite tight throughout. Board edges rubbed/ some marked. Spine strips darkened/ discoloured. Top front edge of spine strip of volume 15 is torn. A few dents/ marks to some boards. Very heavy set - assume over 11kg - so expect to pay more for shipping (and insuring for value) than the default price quoted. #Ref:shelf. Bookseller Inventory # 009259
