From Library Journal
Dover again gives us a rich archive of illustrations at a price that's hard to resist. The artist, an early 20th-century French animal illustrator, originally published this portfolio of cats, panthers, wolves, sheep, fish, geese, salamanders, dragonflies, and myriad other creatures in 1911. It's a good resource for any artist. Partington's effort ought to be a logical complement to the Dover book, but it is rather uninspired. The topic seems too large to be covered in 64 pages. Bill Tilton's Drawing and Painting Animals (North Light, 1996) is more comprehensive and much more lively.
