"Here is the original source for age-old instructions on correctly mounting all types of game, from birds to deer to fish and beyond--a classic work revived with all of its masterful teachings and more than 250 precise illustrations. Guide to Taxidermy reveals the pleasure of doing taxidermy work for yourself and the profit in performing the art for others. The authors break down what early twentieth-century taxidermists needed to know to be collectors, properly use the tools of the trade, and clean, skin, and mount a wide variety of game from start to finish, including sections on mounting heads, tanning skins, mounting fish and reptiles, collecting and mounting insects and eggs, using tools and gathering materials, selecting eyes and wires, and much more."--P. [4] of cover.
