Rev. JG Wood
ANIMATE CREATION, 1898, 6 Vol half Leather 13" x 10", Chromolithograph, JG Wood
New York: Selmar Hess, 1898. Six volume large 13" x 10" size. Leather with Gold Printing, but leather is not in good condition. (Sheds lint). Interior looks good with pages secure.

Nice marbling inside boards. Edges, corners worn. This 6 volume set is called Animate Creation by Rev J G Wood. It was published in 1898 with leather bindings.

It's rare to find a complete set seemingly intact. There are thousands of black and white illustrations. Some small and some full page on heavier stock paper like the color examples. The first 2 books feature mammals with consecutive numbering to 626 pages plus an index. The second two are about birds with 624 pages. The last two volume are about reptiles, amphibians, and everything else with 594 pages. Each volume is 13 by 10 inches by about 1.25 inches thick. These weigh about 30 pounds, so shipping may be expensive. If you want to pick them up in NE Georgia, we'll try to work with you. But payment is up front. We're about 10 miles from North Carolina and South Carolina. Natives here tend to consider Atlanta South Georgia. Please read the condition statement above. I didn't take the time to repeat info both places, so look at both. These are not pristine, but they are still a treasure. I'm somewh … [Click Below for Full Description]
