Very rare antique Victorian children's book, "The World's Great Menagerie!" The book is overall in good condition with some signs of wear and age. The covers of the book have some mild soiling and wear with some heavy chipping to the paper on the spine. The corners of the boards are a little curved. The binding of the book is good and sound. The book is illustrated with some nice chromolithograph illustrations. Some of the illustrations have some light offsetting with small sections of loss to the image. The interior is lightly toned from age but is mostly clean with just the occasional minor spot of grubbiness or soiling. There is a lightly penciled name to the bottom of the first page. The book measures approximately 11 5/8 inches by 9 3/8 inches and is 12 pages long. It is undated but is circa the late 1800's or the very early 1900's.
