A unique and beautifully executed book which gains its excellence from the distinctive artistry of the forty illustrative plates and appropriate accompanying text. Mr. Mochi's scaled shadow portraits of forty species of ungulates are exact biologically as well as being visually gratifying. Mr. Carter's text explains the breakdown of the even and odd Load classifications into families, genera, species, and subspecies. His parallel comments on the species cover identifying characteristics, habitat and habits of the animals. A book to delight children as well as adults, for professional zoologists and artists as well as interested laymen.
