Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a very good hardcover. Circa 1931 DoubleDay Publishing. This copy is very clean inside and out. The pages are very clean with only a hint of light natural tanning from age. Originally a library reference book, it was acquired to private ownership and previous owner neatly embossed his personal library stamp on title page. No other markings seen inside pages. The binding is tight and straight. The green w gold design hardcover boards are also very good with only a hint of shelf wear. The original library numbers are stamped on the outside cover, along the spine, below title and author lettering. Slightly larger hardcover, super octavo size or 7" x 11" with 253 pages including index.

Mary C. Dickerson was an American herpetologist and curator of herpetology at the American Museum of Natural History. The Frog Book was originally published in 1906, and her previous book, Moths and Butterflies was published in 1901. Both books were well received and set a standard for future publications.

The Frog Book by Mary C. Dickerson is a serious guide for both amateur and experienced herpetologists alike. The contents are graced by 16 color plates, including the frontispiece which still has its original tissue guard. 12 black and white plates detail habitats and haunts of common toads and frogs. Text illustrations can also be found throughout.
