South American Mammals, Series 691.
This is the 6th 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 book is quite hard to find, otherwise I wouldn’t be offering it for sale in this condition – fair only. It has been covered in clear plastic, it’s an ex-library book with all the associated marks and scars you’d expect. The spine, although covered in clear plastic, is well worn. But the content pages are actually ok but for a library stamp on one text page. So it would make a decent reading copy. With a tally number of 200, I believe it to be a first edition. It dates to the early-1970s and has the original price of 15p stamped on the back.
