Extinct and Vanishing Animals of The Old World

Extinct and Vanishing Animals of The Old World
by Francis Harper

Publisher: American Committee for Wild Life Protection 1945
Number of pages: 878

It consists to a large extent of an inventory of vanishing resources, as an essential step in their conservation.
