SECONDHAND REPTILE BOOK

THE SNAKES OF AUSTRALIA [FACSMILE]

Gerard Krefft

Lookout Publications, 1984.

Colour plates.

Krefft's Snakes is the premier Australian reptile book and is one of the most desirable and important of all Australian nineteenth-century natural history publications.

The plates were drawn and coloured by the Scott sisters, Harriet and Helena, who were responsible for many natural history illustrations including Krefft's other great book, Mammals of Australia, 1871.

The original is now an expensive book and this excellent facsimile is a very good addition to any reptile book collection.
