PDF Reprint #1

A Beginner's Guide to Taxidermy


This guide contains a comprehensive digest of the knowledge of Taxidermy in a form convenient for everyday use, and supplies concise information on the general principles of the subjects on which it treats. It is fully illustrated with over 100 illustrations and gives step-by-step instructions on how to skin, stuff, and mount birds, mammals, and fish.

Book Excerpt:

Taxidermy has been defined as the art of preparing and preserving the skins of animals, and also of stuffing and mounting them so as to impart to them as close a resemblance to the living forms as possible. The art is classified easily into three broad divisions: (1) Birds, (2) Mammals, (3) Fish… Also, taxidermy has been extended further so as to include the preserving and setting of insects, a subject really forming part of the science of entomology… The skinning, stuffing, and mounting of birds is the first part of the subject to receive treatment.

Very few tools are required by the taxidermist, it being possible to skin both birds and small mammals with only a penknife and a pair of scissors, and with the further aid of a pair of pliers to stuff and set them up.

It is not, however, always well to work with makeshift tools, and most, if not all, of the following should be obtained; but beginners are advised not to purchase the "boxes of bird-stuffing tools," as advertised, or they may find half of the tools useless and the other half unnecessary.

Please note: This excellent PDF Reprint is a high-quality, electronic facsimile version of the actual book published in 1900s.

The Taxidermist's Manual

 

The art of collecting, preparing, and preserving objects of natural history

There are few individuals who have not, in the course of their lives, met with objects of Natural History, which they considered worth preserving, but, from the want of knowledge how to proceed, have been unable to do so. Indeed many specimens have been lost from this cause alone. To remedy this, in some degree, is the intention of the this book, which will be found to contain almost all that is already known on the methods of Collecting and Preserving Objects of Natural History, including several things which are not generally known.
