This early work on taxidermy is a fascinating read for the amateur or professional taxidermist and also contains much information that is still useful today. Forty-eight text and full page drawings and diagrams illustrate this compelling work. Contents Include: Preface; General Principles of Zoological Collecting; Collecting Mammals; Skinning Mammals: Small Mammals, Large Mammals, Mammals Requiring Special Treatment, Pelting Skins; Collecting and Skinning Birds; Collecting Reptiles, Amphibians, and Fishes; Collecting Skeletons; Permits for Scientific Purposes; References. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
