Pp. xi, 364; 57 text-figures (black-and-white photos, line-drawings). Publisher's dark green cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, lg 8vo. This is Charles Sonntag's personal interleaved copy with his signature dated 24/3/24 on the front endpaper. This copy was specially made by the publisher with a blank page bound between each printed page. The blank pages bear numerous inked notations in Sonntag's hand that would have formed the basis for a revision of this work. Unfortunately, Dr. Sonntag died suddenly on October 10, 1925 only two days before his thirty-eighth birthday, so there was no new edition. After his death, this book was passed on to famed primate biologist G. Elliot Smith; his bold signature appears on the front endpaper below Sonntag's signature. Later, the book was owned by the noted British zoologist and statesman, Lord Solly Zuckerman; his signature lies below that of Elliot Smith. One additional signature lies below Zuckerman's signature. A unique copy with very interesting historical associations. Light wear to cloth and bump to one outer corner, a tight and clean copy in near fine condition. Bookseller Inventory #
