Being a Description of the Habitations of Animals. Abridged from 'Homes without Hands'
New edition, hardback bound in half-leather by Riviere, with five raised bands, gilt titling and simple floral decoration to spine. Marbled boards and page edges. 19 × 12.5cm, xii + 411pp.
An illustrated book describing the homes of burrowing and pensile mammals, birds, reptiles, spiders, molluscs etc.
A good reading copy. The leather is faded to the spine and scuffed to the spine ends and raised bands. The contents are in good order but the book was previously owned by a smoker and there is an odour, which will disappear in time...
