Mammal Book

Unread postby yoda » Thu Jul 18, 2013 11:16 am

Hi All,
Wonder if anyone can help me with the following.

I used to have a booked called the Mammals of Southern Africa.
Don't recall who it was by.
It was A4, maybe bigger (so not a field guide or "pocket book") and quite thick.
Very detailed with lots of info, maps etc
If I recall they cover/dust jacket was yellowish with with drawings of animals on it.
I think I got my copy around the mid 1980's

I no longer have it and am trying to track it down again

Thanks

I have got it at home. Will try to remember to look tonight.
