His monumental Mammals Of Australia is a convincing tribute to his excellence in this field. This volume is the first of the three, and now entitled Australian Marsupials and Monotremes. It includes the two exceptional egg-laying mammals, the platypus and the echidna, and a wealth of other native Australian mammals." FINE-HARDCOVER.
