About this Item

Very nice copy indeed. Olive green boards are handsomely and crisply gilded at face and spine with a most decorative cover featuring animals in bright gold against a black scene of water and trees. Spine is likewise pictorial. Small bit of wear to crown and tail of spine and along rear hinge at back, though there is no interior cracking to hinges either front or back and book is tightly bound. No foxing, just mild toning to pages. A sequel to the author's previous book "Life and Her Children" which dealt with invertibrates. Very nicely illustrated throughout. Arabella Buckley was a British naturalist who specialized in adapting science for children with a strong emphasis on evolution. 387 pages. Indexed, plus ads for other books, including those by Darwin. Bookseller Inventory # 16609K

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
