(I) Hunting Wild Life with Camera and Flashlight: (2) La vie des animaux sauvages de l'Afrique (3) Parade of the Animal Kingdom

Abstract

THE art of the camera seems almost wholly to have displaced that of the pen and pencil in the illustration of popular works on animals, and these three books, dealing with wild life in their own special ways, owe a large share of their attractiveness to the photographs which, apart from a couple of maps and a rough sketch, are their only pictures.
