This is a WONDERFUL 749-page 1949 book published by the WPA , completely illustrated with black & white photographs and some full-page color photos about every conceivable mammal, fish, reptile, amphibian ans bird that ever existed!!!

Great collectible book for kids and adults who are fascinated by wild life!

It is called "American Wild Life" published by Wm. H. Wise and Co. of New York., and compiled by the Writers' Program of the Work Projects Administration (WPA) in the City of New York.

The front raised cover pattern is in gold and green with a raised green textured buffalo on the front. The spine also is dark green with gold lettering.

There are many photos on each page, accompanying the descriptions of the breadth of wildlife!

The inside and back end papers are wonderfully illustrated in cream and dark green of a variety of wild life discussed in the book.

*** It weighs almost 3 pounds. The shipping price is for priority mail. If you want media mail it will be cheaper (4.50 for USA but slower) , so let me know!

SIZE:
* 8 5/8" tall x 5 3/4" wide x 1 1/2" thick

CONDITION:
* Excellent
* The cover has a faint surface spot at the left above the buffalo's tush
* All the interior pages are excellent with no tears and just a few faint age marks (see last photo example where the word "surface" has a slight yellowed age mark )
* This estate book must have been bought originally at a book dealer since there is a light pencil marking on the corner of a front black page that reads (1949) $ 27.50, and in pen, "Bee Dee", the original owner of the book?

all vintage items are always sold "as is"
