Disappearing Mammals, 1973, Series 727


Disappearing Mammals,  Series 727.

This is the 2nd book in the Conservation series, 727. It was both written and beautifully illustrated by John Leigh-Pemberton.  These books were, in many ways, ahead of their time with their focus on the dangers of neglecting our environment.  This was a topic close to the heart of Editorial Director Douglas Keen.  It is no coincidence that these books, filled with warnings about the need to take action on the environment, came out at the time of his retirement.  He was determined that this message should be emphasised before he left.

This copy:

This matt copy is in very good condition.  There are some tiny flakes of colour missing along the spine but inside the books is in good, clean condition.  It dates to the early-1970s and has the original price of 18p (twice revised) on the back.  With a tally number of 320, I believe this to be a first edition.
