South American Mammals, 1972, Series 691


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 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.
