Description: No date (circa 1880). Pictorial wraps with cloth spine. Front cover corner tips are chipped; rear cover has a larger chip along the bottom edge (one cm. deep, seven cm. long). There isn't a title page and it is uncertain if it was originally published with one. The rear cover is illustrated with the monogram of the Milwaukee publisher George Brumder. Approximately 80 pages (each chapter is individually numerated). A few pages show minor soiling. 14 color plates of birds and 10 color plates of mammals; one b/w illustration. The first color plate has a repaired tear. 8.5 x 6 inches.

This volume features Saugethiere (mammals) and Vogel (birds). It appears that it was published as part of a serialized edition of Dr. Hermann Dumling's 1875 book, Illustrirtes Thierleben fur Schule und Haus mit besonderer Berucklichtigung der amrikanischen Thiere [Illustrated Animal Life for School and Home with special consideration of American Animals]. The illustrations are captioned with both German and English animal names.

Dr. Hermann Duemling (1845-1913) was born in Germany, educated at Halle and Heidelberg, and taught at Concordia College (now Concordia Theological Seminary) in Fort Wayne, Indiana, between 1874 and 1899. He was the editor of Milwaukee's Germania Abend-Post newspaper (published by George Brumder) between 1899 and 1913 and was also the author of books on natural history and mathematics.
