South American Mammals, 1972, Series 691

£3.00

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 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.
