Identical to the original in all but the cover.

An excellent insight into the life of the naturalist of the day.

 






Walter Potter and his Museum of Curious Taxidermy - Soft back - Pat Morris Walter Potter and his Museum of Curious Taxidermy - Soft back - Pat Morris

A marvellous account documenting the life of Walter Potter and his infamous museum of curiosities. Colour and B/W photographs throughout. This book serves as a record of a collection, the likes of what is unlikely to be seen again. The museum attracted many visitors throughout its long history at several locations, finally residing at the Jamaica Inn in Cornwall, where after many years it was finally sold via auction and dispersed worldwide.

A must have book for any collector.

Van Ingen & Van Ingen Van Ingen & Van Ingen

Another fine publication from Pat Morris.  An amazing record of the Van Ingen Company located in Mysore, India. Renown for big game trophies, Van Ingen’s factory and output was astonishing, employing around 100 people in its heyday made it probably the largest taxidermy business of any in the world. This book contains over 450 b/w photographs along with some in full colour. This is a must have book for those collectors interested in big game taxidermy of a bygone colonial age.
