Title: Bears, Owls, Tigers and Others!: Philadelphia's Zoo 1874-1949
Description: Princeton, New Jersey, Princeton University Press, for the Newcomen Society American Branch, 1949. Second Printing. Softcover. Size: 8vo 8" - 9" tall. This author was then a member of the Newcomen Society and was President of Zoological Society of Philadelphia (Philadelphia Zoo). Sturdy, still tightly bound softcover copy, minor to moderate wear of covers and text-block, but with neither underlining nor highlighting. Perfectly readable, usable copy, though lightly marred at front cover by former price in pencil. Yet another fine contribution to the series of addresses, lectures, occasional papers and memorials published for the Newcomen Society American Branch by the Princeton University Press. Tan printed and illustrated wrappers, stiff, staple-bound, very lightly sunned of covers, else clean, stiff, bright, unmarked of interior. "Actorum Memores Simul Affectamus Agenda" is the Society's red emblazoned logo at front cover. Black-and-white illustrations and photographs. Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. 36 pp. . . . Near Fine
