This volume contains a classic handbook on the art of taxidermy, and includes all the information an existing or prospective taxidermist needs to know about their enterprise. Complete with detailed diagrams and simple directions, this volume constitutes a must-have for those with an interest in the art, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “Tools”, “Skinning Small Animals”, “To Clean a Mammal Skin”, “Mounting”, “Determining the Posture”, “Mounting Larger Animals”, “Skinning and Stuffing Birds”, “Where Details Count”, “Mounting Birds”, “Skinning Heads of Birds”, “Removing Fat From Skins of Birds”, etc. Many vintage books like this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality addition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on taxidermy.
