Title:The Royal Tiger of Bengal: His Life and Death
Publisher:Asian Educational Service
Remarks:B&W Illustrations and Map.
Size:123 x 186 mm
This is an account of the tiger from the field-naturalist s point of view, and, as is the case with every production of Dr. Fayrer’s pen, is full of interesting material and life-like description. After defining the tiger’s position in animal life, a brief anatomical sketch is given, after which its distribution, habits, and achievements are described. The whole is appropriately finished by an account, from the sportsman’s point of view, of the various modes in which his death is accomplished-with the usual accompaniment of a few tiger stories more or less bloody and sensational. The worst of the book is its want of arrangement, scrappy character, and many marks of haste and carelessness which deform it.
