The Wild Animals of Australasia. Embracing the Mammals of New Guinea & the Nearer Pacific Islands.

London: George Harrap, 1926.

Octavo, many photographic illustrations, a good copy in decorated boards, small kangaroo vignette to front board.

First edition: an attractive study of the wild animals of Australia and the Pacific. The work is particularly good on the kangaroo, with over thirty photographic illustrations of the different species of wallaby and kangaroo. Easily one of the most striking images is the photograph of a young thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger, with its dinner.

The authors were particularly well qualified for the task: Le Souef was then curator of Taronga Park in Sydney while Burrell was the author of the well-received Life History of the Platypus. With a chapter on 'The Bats of Australia and New Guinea' by Ellis le G. Troughton, zoologist at the Australian Museum in Sydney.
