The flower book Macmillan issued about a year ago has taken its place as the book of its kind. Now comes the animal book of the same type -- over 700 illustrations, photographs of animals in their own habitat. The text tells the distinguishing marks, how the animal lives, how it protects itself, its habits, reproduction, etc. Includes familiar animals, animals important for food, strange specimens, common zoo and circus animals, animals in literature, prehistoric animals. The author is Professor of Protozoology in Johns Hopkins. Good merchandise for the long pull.
