Practical Taxidermy - A Manual of Instruction To The Amateur In Collecting, Preserving, And Setting up Natural History Specimens of All Kinds This comprehensive manual on early taxidermy was published in London in 1884, and is much sought after by modern taxidermists for its wealth of detail and historical content. The author was curator of the Town Museum, Leicester, and considered to be one of England's foremost taxidermists. He intended this book...
