Cape Town Purnell & Sons 1965 First Edition Very Good Fair Vincent A. Wager. 
242 pp, small 4to (10" H). Colour and b&w photographs, drawings by the author. "The first section of the book deals in general terms with all aspects of frog life, legends, mating habits, homing instincts, calls, and their many and varied enemies. Their different food requirements are discussed, and especially the value to mankind of those species whose main diet consists of agricultural pests, and mosquitoes. The last section of the book is for those who wish to have more detailed information about the 101 species and sub-species that inhabit South Africa, and the scientist will find full descriptions that would make possible the ready identification of eggs and tadpoles, large numbers of which are described for the first time in this work. All the available information has been included on the South African Amphibia, both from the author's knowledge, and from literature on the subject." Light edge wear to boards, light tiny foxing marks on top of textblock, very light browning to endpapers, tiny split in front gutter. Dust jacket is basically complete, but has moderate edge wear/soiling, soiling on rear panel, light rubbing, delamination and laminate creases, 1" tear, tiny chips/tears, light browning.
