Australian Mammals, 1970, series 691
This is the second 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.
