This antiquarian text comprises a comprehensive guide to identifying fur-bearing animals. It was initially intended to aid persons engaged in trade to recognise readily, and to have a closer knowledge of, the animals with which they are to some extent already familiar. Yet the work will also be of interest to the general public, due to the author's small sketches of the habits of the animals described. This text will be of much value to those with an interest in the fur trade, and constitutes a worthy addition to collections of such literature. The chapters of this book include: 'East African Monkey', 'Common Monkey', 'Mona Monkey', 'Green Monkey', 'Grivet Monkey', 'Patas Monkey', 'Vervet', 'Red Monkey', 'Pluto Monkey', 'Red-Fronted Lemur', 'Black Lemur', 'Lion', 'Puma', 'Tiger', 'Bengal Tiger', 'Jaguar', 'Ocelot', 'Eyra Cat', etcetera. This text was first published in 1892.
