Pp. 142, (2); numerous color photos and color maps, some black-and-white photos.  Publisher’s original green cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and front cover, color pictorial dust jacket, color pictorial endpapers, sm 4to.  This volume is a comprehensive account of the Great Indian One-horned Rhinoceros, its past history and present status, generic characteristics, temperament, behavior and habits as well as its position in the scheme of nature.  This species once roamed across the alluvial plains of mega-rivers such as the Indus, the Ganges, and the Brahmaputra – today it is confined to a few small pockets in Assam, West Bengal and Nepal.  The Indian Rhino has become a casualty of the supposed medical properties associated by man with its horn, flesh and other organs (from the jacket flap).  No ownership marks and no signs of use.
