ANIMATE CREATION ILLUSTRATED Vol I of 3 mammals 1885


ANIMATE CREATION; POPULAR EDITION OF ''OUR LIVING WORLD,'' A NATURAL HISTORY by The Rev. J. G. Wood, Revised and Adapted to American Zoology by Joseph B. Holder, M.D.  ''FULLY ILLUSTRATED WITH SCIENTIFIC ACCURACY  VOLUME I ONLY of Three Volume set.  Includes:




10 full-color, full-page plates (Chimpanzee, tiger, leopard, puma, sea lion, harvest mouse, porcupine, chillingham cattle, stag, or red deer, rhinoceros))
20 full-page b/w plates
ca 300 in-text b/w illustration

Pebbled leather boards with smooth leather on spine and corners.  There is no text on the cover and small gilt text on spine, leading me to believe this has been rebound.   Front hinge is cracked and tears starting at top and bottom.  Modest edgewear.  Frayed corners.  Some age-toning.  Illustrations good.


The 1885 edition of Animate Creation was issued in three large volumes.  The 1898 edition was issued in six shorter volumes.  THIS IS VOL I of the 1885 set. 


Over the next months, I will be listing many collectible books from a family member's estate. Since the books must be sold, they will be listed with a very low minimum bid and no reserve. If you're interested in collectible books, please look for my future listings. I'll gladly combine purchases for less costly shipping.
