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 matt copy is in good condition. There is quite heavy wear to the spine and a bit of minor damage but the pages are clean and very tight. 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.
