8.5” x 11” on photo paper, with mild creases. Cute image might look good in a bathroom display. Selling for $3.00

Book: Snakes of Georgia and South Carolina. Not sure how this got packaged so far away from the library, but it wasn’t included on the lists that were sent out. 28 page sample copy sent to Chuck, with accompanying letter. Copies available on line for anywhere from $5.00 to $289.99 (!??!). Selling this one, with a slightly dented cover, for $4.00


4 plates (#1, 2, 4, 5) from Animal Kingdom (no author known). 5” x 8.5”, with multiple colored images on each plate. Would look nice framed to match. Selling 4 together for $25.00

Second plate from Book of the World 1862 #48 Matamata Turtle and ?Caecilian?. (as shown in Ad #22). Invoice included shows it was purchased from the UK. Has a soft crease along the left/bottom corner. 8” x 10.5 “. Selling for $30.00

This appears to be an original watercolor mounted onto a stiff backing. It has a card, presumably from the artist, with a spot for the Israel Exhibit “turtle”, the Hebrew Name: “?” and the English name “CHAV.” Selling it for $75.00 (could be a steal!)

Two copies of Plate XCIX from unknown English-language book. Each is 9” x 14.5” and has 7 figures on it. One is loose, creased in the upper left corner, with slight foxing. Selling for $10.00. The other one is shrink-wrapped onto foam core, in good condition, for $16.00

Life Magazine from March 10, 1947. Has an article about Turtle Soup on 5 pages, accompanied by several (some rather disturbing) photos. Overall, the magazine is in quite good shape (considering it’s almost 80 years old), full of advertisements that are now quite entertaining. Selling it for $15.00

Beautifully colored plate #3 from unknown English-language book. 8.25” x 11”, with figures of two turtles, each with partial plastron drawing. Selling it for $12.00

Two plates and two pages of text from unknown Italian-language book, each 10.5” x 15”. Beautifully colored plates of Chelonia imbricate and Testudo graceca. Both plates have an embossed imprint directly below the caption text, but I cannot quite make it out. Selling the plates and test together for $25.00
