An Alphabet of Extinct Mammals.

Goole, UK: Chevington Press, 2009. Wakefield, Bob. Folio. (30)ff. One of 55 copies. Signed by the artist, D.R. "Bob" Wakefield. Twenty-seven color etchings, including a frontispiece portrait of Wakefield. A stunning return to the natural history books he created in the 1980s, in which Wakefield takes the theme of mammalian extinction and creates an alphabet of animals that no longer roam the earth and seas, including the Cuban spider monkey, the quagga, and the Puerto Rican sloth. Wakefield's detailed etchings render these animals heartbreakingly vivid, especially when taken with the short accompanying text that provides a brief, tragic history of the species. Bound by Gray Parrot in quarter-leather and paste paper over boards. Fine. Item #29840
