Item Description: London: Alexander Macmillan & Co., 1874, 1874. Folio (468 x 346 mm). Original crushed red morocco over bevelled boards, spine lettered in gilt, decorative frames to covers blocked in blind and gilt, turn-ins and edges gilt, marbled endpapers, blue silk page marker. Faint pencil gift inscription to head of title page. Slight wear to extremities, spine lightly toned, a couple of abrasions and small marks to covers, shallow indentation to rear cover, light foxing to prelims and endmatter; a very good, bright copy. With 20 engraved plates. First edition, large paper issue. Wolf's "pictures are often noted for the astonishing realism of feet, fur, and feather texture, and for their backgrounds, which often include small but perfectly painted subsidiary creatures bickering or otherwise associating in a lively fashion. In the opinion of Sir Edwin Landseer he was 'without exception, the best all-round animal painter that ever lived' (Schulze-Hagen, 1)" (ODNB). The text was provided by the American zoologist Daniel Giraud Elliot, scientific founder of the American Museum of Natural History in 1869, who commissioned Wolf for a number of illustrated zoological works. The engravings in this work were provided by the wood-engraver and mountaineer Edward Whymper. Contemporary reviews of this collaboration between the three men, all well-regarded in their field, were highly favourable, The Pall Mall Gazette writing that "the fierce, untameable side of brute nature has never received a more robust and vigorous interpretation".
