The Animal World, A Book of Natural History
by

Publisher: The University Society
ISBN/ASIN: B000KZBOVO
Number of pages: 508

Description:
This volume is a sketch of the animal life of the whole world. More than a sketch it could not be in the space at the author's command; but he has so skilfully selected his examples to illustrate both the natural groups and the faunas which they represent, that his work forms a most commendable ground-plan for the study of natural history.
