(Taylor & Francis, 1943), second reprint [Zoological] Survey of India Press, Dehra Dun, 1961. 24cm. Pp.xii,583. 166 figures, folding map in rear pocket. Red cloth, gilt, affixed clear cellophane cover, a good used copy.
First published in London, December 1943, and to the unwary the first two reprints (1957 and 1961) can be difficult to distinguish from the original. Both offer an Introductory Note (pp.i) clearly dated Calcutta 1957, the second reprint has the small and often faint ink stamp of the Survey Press immediately below the date on the title page, and is dated 1961. Both of these reprints in terms of paper and printing quality, image definition and binding are quite true to the original, only the tipped in folding map is revised.
