Available for proofreading: taxidermy manual

How to Stuff Birds and AnimalsThis week’s proofreading project is another of Frank Tousey’s how-to manuals, from the same series that brought you How to Fence and How to Become an Engineer.

This time around, the subject matter could be viewed as being a bit more ghoulish: taxidermy. How to Stuff Birds and Animals provides instructions on how to preserve a large variety of creatures (including a wide range of mammals, from hedgehogs to dolphins, as well as birds, insects, fish and reptiles). The text is accompanied by some occasionally disturbing illustrations.

If you want to help preserve this vintage book in electronic format, you can join in at the project page. To learn more about the proofreading process, see this earlier post.
