When I was very small, I loved books with animal pictures in them. Now I'm older but books like this one, illustrated by Percy Reeves, still have a magic that attracts me. Friendly Animals by Karl Patterson Schmidt, published in 1947 by M.A. Donahue & Co,, describes the origins of many of our domestic animals. It's a big book at 10" X 12 1/4" and 64 pages and the big full page color illustrations are nicely set off by small black and white marginal drawings. Another well-known wildlife artist, Walter Alois Weber did the lovely cover and the drawings for the pictorial end papers. The board covers have some scuffing and wear as you would expect in a more than 60-year-old book but the binding is nice and tight and the inside is clean and bright. A great find for a small (or large) animal lover!

SHIPPING: OMG, why is it so much??? First and most importantly, please know that I will do my best to see you pay no more than necessary. I don't like paying or charging high shipping fees. But here's why the listed amount is so high:
> I don't hide shipping costs in the item price.
> Etsy's current method of calculating shipping charges makes me use "worst case" figures for each country and item, especially in the case of multiple purchases.
> Canada is higher on postage than the US and the rate jumps severely as weight increases. However, BUYING MORE THAN ONE ITEM AT A TIME OFTEN SAVES YOU MONEY because I’ve become pretty handy at packing lots of stuff safely into a box and thereby reduce your shipping cost per item.
As always, once I do the calculations for your finished package, I gladly refund any shipping overpayment greater than $3 -- the point where it makes sense considering the PayPal fees.

I am also always happy to work with International buyers who have a CONFIRMED PAYPAL ADDRESS– please convo me with your shipping address and I’ll give you a shipping cost.
