A Natural History (set)

This educational guide is illustrated with characterful wood engravings, and contains not only quaint misconceptions about some species, but also that amusing pomposity toward the animal kingdom that was so prevalent at the time—Parley’s very popular work was written before Darwin had returned from his famous voyage. Bound in green Morocco. Three volumes, each limited to 150 copies. About thirty illustrations in each. 48pp.
