South American Mammals, 1972, Series 691 (scruffy)

£1.00

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 copy:

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.
