Book of Monsters
by D. Fairchild, M.H. Fairchild
Publisher: National Geographic Society 1914
Number of pages: 278
The pictures in this book are portraits of creatures which are as much the real inhabitants of the world as we are, and have all the rights of ownership that we have, but, because their own struggle for existence so often crosses ours, many of them are our enemies. Indeed, man's own real struggle for the supremacy of the world is his struggle to control these tiny monsters.
