Lloyd’s Natural History, published in the late 19th century, had many volumes, covering almost the entire animal kingdom. The plates were originally published in “Jardine’s Naturalist’s Library.” and “re-coloured from actual specimens in the British Museum” for this volume. This title has 38 plates, representing only a small part of the information about marsupials and monotremes 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 and clean make it desirable.
This book was in good condition with a tight binding when I acquired it, so it was hard to get fully flat scans. I present here the full page plates as well as slightly cropped images, with the titles removed. The scans are not the highest quality, and these are the largest resolution I have.
