Description: Full-page colour illustrations – many of which are double-spread – depict various common and exotic animals, whose names are printed in a large, bold font identical to the one used for the title. Unusually, the animals appear rather haphazardly, not having been put into any alphabetical or other immediately logical order.
Glazed pictorial boards. Faint remains of an adhesive label to front. Spine ends bumped; corners negligibly so. Last two pages look to have been nibbled on, otherwise contents are in superb condition. Ultra-tight binding.
'Dot matrix' price of £1.20 indicates this copy dates from the early 1990s.
Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.5″). 12mo. Unpaginated.
