"Mr Harris, (a rat) who has come into money, is eager to improve the social tone of his friends and neighbours, and to win for himself the recognition of an esta blished place in society; he aspires to a knighthood. His efforts to enlighten the deeply conservative little animals around him meets with little success: how he fares in his more ambitious aim is told in the pages of this story. Assist e d b y t h e ingenious poet (and valet, Beddoes Waterbrook, a rabbit) and by the accidental cross purposes that occur in the larger world of the Others, strange things happen and curious things emerge....To suspend disbelief and begin the story is t o e nt e r a ne w world: a world separate but intertwined with that of our everyday experience. There is a cricket match, of which the strangest thing is perhaps that it remains unrecorded by Neville Cardus, for it is impossible to imagine him ab se nt on su ch a n o cc asion. Then there is Old Beak and Claws (the owl) and his collection of snuff boxes....It may not always be, as Otter Mullet the fishmonger remarks on one occasion, 'good natural history', but it is as well to remem ber some tim es tha t t her e a re o the r sorts of truth (and the poetic not least among them) that are even more important to human beings than that particular variety found within the covers of text books...."

"Starting in present-day Holland, Poortvliet observes a nd illustrates, the many animals who inhabit this earth, in great detail. He may catch a rabbit, lynx, or partridge sauntering by, or admire a doe with her young right beneath him. He takes notice of foxes, deer, and wolves, and portrays them r e a l istically and convincingly. (He) continues on his journey to the sixteenth century, a time when humans coexisted with such predators as bears, lynx, and wolves, and other wild animals. His journey ends with the people and animals of the Ic e Ag e, a nd he imagines the now-extinct mammoth and other creatures in their natural habitat - the giant deer, the wooly rhinoceros, the wild horse, the auroch, and the cave lion. Exploring the boundaries of time travel and studying the wild anim al s a t c los e range, (he) documents their daily habits and rituals. His colorful account unfolds before us to reveal the many interesting facts about the mammals: How much bigger is an elk than a deer or a doe? How do you subdue a rhinoceros? How man y po unds is a mammoth's daily food intake?" Previous owner's signed bookplate on front free endpaper, tiny dint on bottom edge of each board.
