North American Mammals, 1970, series 691
This is the third 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 very good condition. Please note – in the photo there is a label on the base of spine but I have since removed this without leaving a scar. There’s a tiny hint of a pen mark at the head of the spine. There’s a small number on the front endpapers, but otherwise the pages are exceptionally clean and tight. It dates to the early 1970s and has the original price 15p on the back.
