With 8 colour plates and nearly 300 other illustrations this is a nicely presented volume. The animals covered range from dogs, birds, fish to wild animals. Some of the illustrations come from photos and in addition there are drawings by Ernest Aris, Dorothy Bishop and Frank M. Williamson. Ward Lock published Wonder Books from 1905 right through until the 1960's. There were general picture annuals as well as specialist volumes such as this one. They are generally characterised by the profuse illustrations contained within and the gold rear board. This volume has end paper illustrations by Thomas Maybank (1869-1929). Maybank illustrated many of the books in the ‘wonder-book’ series and is perhaps best known as an illustrator for the humorous and satirical magazine Punch. This still has the rather hard to find dustjacket. 256pp. 25x19 cm. Pictorial paper covered boards over red cloth backstrip. Dustjacket has various chips and some loss to spine and front corner. Edges worn. Backstrip bumped and stain to lower part. Some browning to endpapers.
