    Skulls PDF ☆ Hardcover skulls kindle, Skulls eBookMost people who like natural history and the outdoor world are in my experience entranced by skulls We find them beautiful assuming the stinky parts are long gone and they tell tales about the species and the individual The individual tales are often tragic a horse skull with a broken lower jaw a coyote skull with a bullet hole a smashed skull from a road killed raccoon The species tales are less freighted Teeth and sagittal crests imply how the animal made its living and defended itselfThis hardcover is a beautiful collection of Nick Mann's photos of skulls that were prepared by a private collector Alan Dudley Dudley came t

    Skulls PDF ☆ Hardcover skulls kindle, Skulls eBookThis book's title is right about one thing and that is that Alan Dudley's collection of skulls is definitely curious  Whether or not that is a good sort of curiosity or not is up for debate but it is a curious collection without dispute  The origins of this book are somewhat odd  Alan Dudley himself happens to be an English collector of skulls who has perhaps the largest private collection in the world of which this book represents only about a seventh or so some 300 of the than 2000 skulls in the collection  Dudley ran afoul of various English laws involving the importation of skulls of various protected animals and appears to have sought in this book some means of recovering his reputation and increasing his popularity through sharing at least some of what he has collected with a friendly audience  And if you like the macabre as I do there is a great deal to enjoy here  He certainly has chosen wisely in having his collection
