The advertiser having purchased of the Parisian publishers all the remaining copies of this magnificent work, is enabled to offer them at the above extremely reduced price.
This is the finest work on mammiferous animals ever published in any country, and has always been considered, both for the high talent displayed in the text and the extremely beautiful execution of the plates, which resemble drawings, as taking the first place in the class to which it belongs. As very few copies remain for sale, and the price is extremely low, the book must soon become scarce, and rise in value.
"Un des ouvrages les plus exacts et les mieux exécutés que l'on ait encore donnés sur les Mammifères." Brunet.
"It is unnecessary to dilate upon the splendid style in which this work is brought out, or on the ability and fidelity that characterise as well the figures as the descriptions contained in it, since these must be well known to all who have seen any of the plates. It will doubtless form the standard work of reference for the Mammalia. Necessarily too expensive for general circulation, public libraries and the collections of the rich can alone possess it; but to these it is indispensable; while the manner in which it is executed renders it worthy of a place by the side of their most costly and elegant volumes."--Zoological Journal.
