Notes: "With examples selected from the reproductive, alimentary, respiratory, circulatory, nervous, muscular, osseous, locomotory, and other systems of animals... Illustrated by nearly two thousand figures, largely original and from nature."
In this massive posthumous work, Pettigrew documents animal growth and motion in considerable detail with two goals in mind: to use the details of biology to prove a divine Creator and to show that the lessons of the animal world can be applied to engineering (Pettigrew's hobby was flight).
Three volumes (complete), with continuous pagination: xxxii, 1416 pages. 9 by 12 inches.
Edition + Condition: All three volumes are very good in the original publisher's binding of red cloth.
