Here is a Nice Old Book, 'THE TAXIDERMIST'S MANUAL; OR THE ART OF COLLECTING, PREPARING, AND PRESERVING OBJECTS OF NATURAL HISTORY. DESIGNED FOR THE USE OF TRAVELLERS, CONSERVATORS OF MUSEUMS, AND PRIVATE COLLECTORS.' By CAPTAIN THOMAS BROWN. Twelfth Edition. London, Edinburgh, and Dublin: A. Fullerton and Co.. 1854. Contains all 6 Plate Page Engravings. 150 page text appears complete. Original Gray-Blue Cloth Covered Binding with Gilt-Stamped Spine. Book is 6-7/8' x 4-3/8'.
Pages and Binding all attached well. Some of the page tops are still uncut and never opened (see photo sample). Only marking in book I see is 19thc owner's names in pencil from the Everett family, with small dealer notations on same front endpapers. Some brown staining on the plate pages. Rest of text is mostly clean-looking. Book is flat. There are some stain spots to the front covers and bottom of spine. Nice Taximdermy Book! USPS Media Mail or Priority Mail shipping options available in the U.S. (keeping in mind that Media Mail can be very slow). No insurance with First Class International shipping.
Look for my other nice old books I am listing as well. See below for payment and shipping details. Feel free to email me with any questions. Thanks for looking!
