The Mammals of Great Britain and Ireland is an extensive three volume set of books. From this volume a small number of special editions were taken focusing on one or two creatures. This sub-volume concerns bats. There is another sub-volume concerning voles etc.

This is a large book published in 1904 by Longman's Green & Co., London. The bat special edition was only produced in a print-run of 1025 copies of which this one is numbered 480 (see photos). It is beautifully illustrated with ten photogravures and nine black and white plates.

PLEASE ADD YOUR MOBILE/CELL PHONE NUMBER separately to the order notes. This large and heavy book will need to be sent by courier and DPD require contact phone numbers to make the booking.

Contents: Order Cheiroptera; Family Rhinophidae; Genus Rinolophus; The Greater Horseshoe Bat; The Lesser Horseshoe Bat; Family Vespertilionodae; Genus Barbastrelle; Genus Plecotus; The Long-Eared Bat; Genus Vespertilio; The Serotine; The Parti-Coloured Bat; Genus Pterygistes and Pipistrellus; The Noctule; Leisler's Bat; The Pipistrelle or Common Bat; Genus Myotis; Daubenton's Bat; Natterer's Bat; Beichstein's Bat; The Whiskered Bat; The Mouse Coloured Bat.

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound with no writing or marks and just the occasional spot. Gilt edged along the top and with some mild tanning to the other two edges. The illustrations and plates are in top order and are absolutely superb. PLEASE NOTE the index and table of illustrations is not correct for this volume as it applies to the larger volume set from which this "Bat" special edition is taken as a supplementary copy.

In dark blue/black cloth covered boards with gilt titles. With a fair amount of shelf wear scuffs and scratches to the cloth and the odd mark to the front board but the binding is good and strong.

Your antique copy of Bats from Volume I of The Mammals of Great Britain will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to include a gift message in the parcel if desired.

PLEASE NOTE DIMENSIONS of this large book: H 35.5 cm x W 32.5 cm, 106 pages, 2.2 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the protective packaging please add a note to the order.
