How it works


This was the title of Stevenson-Hamilton\'s first book, published in 1912. In 1917 this was republished in three parts. This is Part 2, the Vegetarians; the others were Part 1, the Carnivores and Part 3, the Birds, Reptiles and Fishes. Both the 1912 original and the 1917 series remain rare.

The brown cloth-board covers, black to covers and spine, are extensively rubbed. The plain endpapers and xii + 170 pages of text and appendix, which include the illustrations, are all unmarked and undiscoloured.
