A remarkable surviving example of this scarce work in natural history. Description: This is the rare, lavishly decorated and profusely illustrated four-volume edition of NATURE’S WONDERLAND by J. Sterling Kingsley. A grand Victorian literary foray into the animal kingdom and the peoples and races of mankind. Natural history was a favorite topic of our Victorian predecessors. A spirit of discovery characterized the age, and the public’s hunger to learn more about the people, places and creatures of the earth was nearly insatiable. In NATURE’S WONDERLAND narrative and illustration combine to illuminate nature’s living marvels, all the things that swim, crawl, creep, fly and walk, from the lowliest life forms to man himself. This handsomely-bound four-volume set contains hundreds of illustrations, including numerous full-page scenes and a series of color chromolithrographic plates. It is a rare work almost never found in such good condition. Perfect for home or office library, or to adorn the shelves of a traditional drawing room. To give you a clearer idea of all the natural wonders awaiting you in NATURE’S WONDERLAND, I have furnished some helpful details below, starting with the full contents of all four volumes, followed by some of the amazing illustrations found inside. I hope you’ll take a moment to have a look.
