South American Mammals , Series 691.
This is the first book in the Animals of the World series, 691. It was both written and beautifully illustrated by John Leigh-Pemberton. There were 7 books in the series, covering the mammals of the main continents and then with an additional volume ‘Air and Sea Mammals’. The artwork and research in these books is superb – probably Leigh-Pemberton’s tour-de-force for Ladybird. Sadly, it’s not a well-known series today and so goes rather unappreciated.
This matt copy is in good condition. There is are some scrapes and scratces to the back cover and spine edge, but the pages are clean and very tight. It dates to the early-1970s and has the original price of 30p stamped on the back.
