Here for sale is a fantastic vintage book by Eileen Mayo titles The story of living things and their environment. This stunning cloth bound book contains over 1,000 colour illustrations and included some individual plates. There is also a lovely pull out sheet (which has a tear) for the story of living things as shown by the layer of rocks in which they are found. A fabulous edition for any collector to read and enjoy.


The binding of the spine is loose. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.
