A beautiful book with gilt illustration to front board. This book lays out the methods employed by animals in the building of their homes, from the simple burrow, to the animals that work as a colony, constructing elaborate dwelling places without the aid of hands. The numerous engravings are a joy to look at and a testament to the illustrators art.
