Carnivora: Cats, Civets, and Mungooses

Categories: FeaturedPage, Nature & Natural History
Written By: John

Lloyd’s Natural History, published in the late 19th century, had many volumes, covering almost the entire animal kingdom. The species described are quite comprehensive, and the 32 plates represent only a small part of the information in the volume. Most volumes had 30 or more color plates, about 5 by 7 inches.

As with other Lloyd titles, this book can be found, usually for under $200. The plates being intact make it desirable.
