WALKER'S MAMMALS OF THE WORLD. Sixth edition (2 volumes)
Baltimore: Johns Hopkins Press, 1999. Two volumes, tall octavo, black cloth. Black and white photos, index. Fine in fine jackets. First printing of the sixth and latest edition. "From aardwolves and bandicoots to yapoks and zorillas, Ernest P. Walker's Mammals of the World is the most comprehensive - the pre-eminent- reference work on mammals. Now, completely revised and updated, this fascinating guide is better than ever. Providing a complete account of every genus of mammal in all historical time, the sixth edition is 25 percent longer than its predecessor. Of the previous generic accounts, 95 percent have been substantively modified, and there are 80 new ones - among them, three remarkable, large ungulates recently discovered in the forests of Indochina. New also is a full account of the woolly mammoth, now known to have survived until less than 4,000 years ago." In print at USD 160 (amazoid, july 2016).
