A WILD ANIMAL ROUND-UP
Hunter Books
"T28630" Scribner's, N.Y. 1925, first edition,372 pages, profusely illustrated with B & W photographs and drawings. ""Stories and Pictures from the Passing Show."" Hornaday was the founding director of the New York Zoological Society project best known as the Bronx Zoo. An outstanding taxidermist and zoologist, he became obsessed with the idea that our wildlife was doomed by over- hunting and the encroachments of civilization. Hence the production of this volume of sketches including ""Our Last Buffalo Hunt"" and other stories primarily about North American game animals that he felt will be seen only in zoos and museums in the future. He says ""Honestly I am glad I will not be alive to see the tattered remnants of picturesque America as they will appear fifty years from today."" How wrong he was! No dust jacket. No marks or inscriptions. Moderate wear. Gilt cover lettering is bright but spine lettering is dull. A Very Good copy.  ID#: 3755
