Price List of Mounted Specimens for Museums [caption title]

London: Rowland Ward, 1904-1912. Price list. Four different examples of this publication from Rowland Ward [two with the title above, one from 1904 with the caption title "Stuffed Animals: Museum Specimens (All Mounted in Standing Positions)," and one from 1912 with the caption title "Price List of Mounted Specimens for Museums"]. 4to. The lists vary from three to ten pages [rectos only], two include a full page illustration of a stuffed elephant (one torn), three include a Rowland Ward decorated cover sheet. Animals from Africa predominate, but there are also specimens from India, Asia, Europe, North and South America, and Australia; prices seem to top out at $500 for an African elephant (typically an entry would include common name of the animal, its genus and species, its sex, country of origin, and price). Apparently none of these lists are located on OCLC. Folded for mailing, one with a receipt stamp, two with ink docketing. Very good lot of scarce Rowland Ward ephemera. Brad-bound in an upper corner. (#7966). Item #60725

Price: $1,250.00
