A comprehensive volume containing more than 600 accurately detailed reproductions of copperplate engravings, this collection depicts the full spectrum of the animal world. In addition to a broad sampling of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, crustaceans, and insects, the editor has also included a small but choice selection of plant specimens. Captions identify individual illustrations and a complete index provides users with immediate access to individual subjects.
