"ELEMENTS IN ZOOLOGY"
BY SANBORN TENNEY A.M.
PROFESSOR OF NATURAL HISTORY AT WILLIAMS COLLEGE.
I BELIEVE TENNEY WAS ONCE ONE OF THE ORIGINAL FACULTY AT VASSAR.
In any case, this was apparently a ground-breaking book in Zoology and is still used as reference today.
This was published in 1887 by the Author and printed by Trow's printing and bookbinding company of New York.
Book has over 750 wood fabulous and detailed wood engravings.
(please, don't purchase this book and tear it up to sell the engravings...this is a first edition.)
Book is in excellent antique condition, bumps on the spine but still very tight binding and no loose pages. Slight yellowing on edges of pages but no tears or missing pages that I could discern.
This was a students book, so t are several pencil notations throughout the book, some of which are quite amusing--comparing some animal to Miss so-and-so, or
Mr so-and -so. No pen markings.
A wonderful book for the collector of books, or naturalists etc.
