Descripción

8vo., First US Edition, with a frontispiece, 57 plates on 30, and 120 illustrations and 7 full-page maps in the text; cloth, gilt back, brown top, a very good, bright, clean copy. Heuvelman's classic account, dedicated to Serge Frechkop, was first published in two volumes by Plon in Paris in 1955. It remains a key text in the study of mammalian evolution and morphology. The first US edition is considerably more valuable than its French original, since it is not only brought up to date with errors corrected but includes a vast amount of previously unpublished material. In addition, some important chapters are rewritten and several new illustrations added. EXTREMELY SCARCE, ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION. N° de ref. de la librería 18065
