Hand-Book to the Marsupialia and Monotremata

Categories: Nature & Natural History
Written By: John

Here is another from the Lloyd’s Natural History series, published in the late 19th century.  This title has 38 plates, representing only a small part of the information in the volume  (Most volumes, olumes, covering almost the entire animal kingdom, 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.

The Gallery has links to all the plates, both with and without the captions.   The images below link to the individual image pages where they are available for download in various sizes for free.
