What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated, Original Binding, Very Scarce

The first edition, first impression of this work.

With a colour frontispiece and sixty monochrome plats of illustrations from the author, three of which are coloured. Collated complete.

Inspired by Charles Waterton, an English naturalist and explorer, the author Charles Livingston Bull travels to British Guiana and accounts his explorations of the wildlife. 

He notes the behaviours of animals such as jaguars, snapping turtles and "Howling monkeys". 

First and foremost, Bull was an illustrator, but known specifically for his illustration of wildlife. He lived for many years near the Bronx Zoo in New York, which allowed him plenty of experience sketching live animals.
