The original vol. Thorough articles familiarize readers with animals found everywhere on the globe, detailing their life cycles, predators, food systems, overall ecology and much more. Staying true to the original scientific pedigree, Gale enlisted prominent advisors and contributors from the international scientific community to incorporate recent developments in the animal world.
Our new editions of Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia are sure to serve the needs of students at every academic level.
While Gale strives to replicate print content, some content may not be available due to rights restrictions. Call your Sales Rep for details. Bernhard Grzimek hoped his original encyclopedia would disseminate knowledge of the animals and love for them. This is also a goal of the revised edition; it does not disappoint. Authoritative writing in a style accessible to the general reader, comprehensive coverage, a taxonomic arrangement to facilitate comparison between species, consistent organization, ample color illustrations and photographs, incorporation of current research, and the inclusion of conservation status and the significance of the animal to humans make Grzimek's an excellent choice for academic, large public, and special libraries.
Now this acclaimed encyclopedia is being completely revised to incorporate more than 30 years of scientific knowledge and discovery Retaining the character of the first edition, the editors focused on updating the information and revising the text, but the most significant change is a vastly improved structure. Well-organized sections replace the long, endless narratives characteristic of the first edition, thus making the revised edition much easier to use, especially for the nonbiologist Over 5, color illustrations and 3, maps were created specifically for this edition.
Approximately 3, new color photographs are included as well Even after 30 years, the original Grzimek's is still considered a core title for reference collections. Biologists and nonbiologists alike will appreciate the excellent organization, well-written text, and beautiful illustrations. Gale will also publish e-books of the volumes, available through netLibrary, as the printed editions come out. Judging from the volumes released thus far, users will not be disappointed with this new edition. Highly recommended for all types of libraries. Expanded from 13 to 17 volumes, it includes recent knowledge and is repackaged with new photographs, drawings, and layout.
The original work used narrative style, but the second edition divides chapters into specific topic areas, still enjoyable to read but easier to find I find this also in the german ebay.

I had heard of this before but can you or someone tell me exactly what each of the volumes are or what volumes contain what animals? I am mainly interested in the volumes with all the hoofed animals, zebras, camels etc.

Rhinos, tapirs, hippos, deer, camels, giraffes, everybody else is in this volume. Yes, i did as it seems I know these animal encyclopedia very well, and Prof.
He was the director of the German Frankfurter Zoo also in that time Those books were already expensive when they came out, and they are stil one of the best resourses to find out about wildlife! I am happy, my zoo needs not this things!!! The volumes that I have are from the earlier, volume set. I don't know if the volume set has as many Helmut Diller illustrations. Lesley castlerigg I think Helmut's images are in the original 13 volume set. Could you post a couple of photos of the front cover of one of the mammal volumes so I can see what to look out for online?
Also another photo of an open page with some of Helmut's zebra or antelope images?

I think we are in danger of hijacking this thread! As there is no section for books and illustrators, if you don't mind, I've started a new topic in "Talk About All What You Want", where we can continue this conversation. Great idea, Lesley Thankyou. Other than that My Partner Doesn't know i spent much money lol.

I think two of my most expensive plastic animals are these two beauties Go away, Mirko!!!! Those dodos are After a long time not reading in this tread, we can all come to the conclusion that we all pay what we can afford, and for what we really like and want I am a real bargain hunter, just because i let things pass by when they are to expensive in that particular moment, and they will pop up one day again, maybe for a better price It was actually logical, as it was made between , and that was before i ever started to collect really serious, that started in the middle of the 's.
I am pretty sure, the old Schleich beagle and the WWF series of Schleich that Susanne bought and showed here are for sure worth to pay a lot for them, they will never loose value through the years. We can't compare with someone like Richard Lewis, which collection is worth far over He started early i guess, and after he had the base for his collection, he could afford to buy only the very rare pieces for his collection, because he didn't have to concentrate on "minor" things as we all have to do.
And the real value, if this really important for a hardtime collector, as much of us are, is in our own eyes, because we can love a model in our collections which is worth just a penny for example. But we all have the itch to get some models which are missing in our collections, and that makes the search and hunting so nice, you must have something to long for, because when you have the money to buy everything, the real joy of collecting is probably gone with all the money you have Good hunting for us all!

What is more to say. Ich weiss nicht, i don't know, je ne se pas, yo no se, mi no sa, ik weet het niet! What we must realise is that value is not static. What was expensive in the past may not retain it's value in the present or the future. For example I was lucky enough to obtain half a dozen Britains Platypus for 10p each in the late 's.
Now these are considered rare and hard to get! And their "value" is far more than 10p! Luck pays a part here in collecting. Yeah Chris, at least 11P! I have one luckily, but i still am searching one for a very good friend of mine, are you able to help on that maybe? I was lucky enough to find Chris who give me one of this beauty thank you again so much. Then i won't need this other one anymore, as you have one already mon ami!
Sorry Chris At least 11p Willy! Kikimalou wrote: 11P I was lucky enough to find Chris who give me one of this beauty thank you again so much You are welcome Christophe. No need to apologise Willy. This was a very nice gesture for a good friend.
