In his preface the author says the Manual was primarily for use by students at India's Imperial Forest College at Dehra Dun. However, because no text books entitely devoted to Indian Zoology were available, the extent of the work was expanded so that it would be useful in agricultural and other colleges. Thus its subject matter includes animals, insects, reptiles, fish, birds and even whales. The preface is dated 1907 with the title page publication date given as 1908. The book is illustrated throughout with b/w drawings and diagrams, most specially prepared for the Manual with others from earlier publications. The illustrations are printed on 118 individual plates, the majority presenting multiple images, up to about 15 on some plates. Each image is clean, clear, detailed and professional. The author was Imperial Forest Zoologist to the Government of India. 229 text pages followed by 24 page index. Green hard covers have gilt front titles/decorations and gilt spine titles, these remain bright, Front board has impressed border with a botanical impession at each corner. This is repeated on back board with impressed arms of the Government of India Central Printing Office centrally located. Corners and edges lightly bumped or worn, both FEPs have light brown mottling, no inscriptions, front cover is slightly loose and there are a few spots in the text block where there is cracking at the gutter, in the main, the book is internally tight and in excellent condition. This heavy book, just over 1.5kgs unpacked, would require additional postage for overseas delivery. A scarce book. N° de ref. de la librería 003933
