Item Description: Hutchinson & Co., London, 1900. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Vol I. - Has 567 Illustrations (including 13 coloured plates) photographs. Vol. II - Has 643 Illustrations (including 12 coloured plates)photographs. (illustrator). 1st Edition. Red hardcovers are faded as are the spines, corners bumped, gilt titles. Vol 1 has a scuff that penetrates the cloth. Book plate on the free end papers. Overall they are in good sound books. Vol. 1 - Mammals. Vol. 2 - Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, Fishes, Jointed Animals & Mollusc's, etc. The Spectator says if the second volume : - The Living Animals of the World. VoL I & II. (Hutchinson and Co. 108. 6d.)¿This popular work of natural history, which appeared in monthly parts, is now completed, and the second volume begins with the birds and ends with the amoeba. The publishers' plan was a natural history complete, and illustrated entirely with photographs. The present volume contains over six hundred photographs, as a rule from living animals, and for the most part excellent. The birds, fishes, reptiles, amphibians, and even the insects lend themselves to the camera. When we come to the Mollusca and lower animals the interest in the illustrations ceases, and comparatively few pages are devoted to these sub-kingdoms. Excellent writers have been secured to contribute the text, which covers about half of each page, the letterpress is too compressed to be of much value or interest. The names of such authorities as Mr. W. F. Kirby, Mr. W. P. Pycraft, Mr. Theodore Wood, and Mr. Saville-Kent are, however, enough to show that thoroughly trustworthy and scientific naturalists have been secured. The short chapters by Sir Herbert Maxwell and Mr. John Bickerdyke are not enough to give these agreeable writers a chance. Except, as we have said, for the wonderful collection of photographs, the book is not, from the standpoint of the naturalist, remarkable. The first volume, which contained the mammals, was perhaps superior in interest as far as the photo- graphs went. Bookseller Inventory # 000229
