old herp books

I was at a used book store in London recently so I went looking for old herp books and found a couple of prizes

Unfortunately neither is a first print, and they're stamped with the names of the schools that used to own them, but it's still a cool find.

The one on the left is "They Hop and Crawl" by Percy Morris. It's a second edition printed in 1945.

The other books is "The Reptiles of North America". It's the second edition, printed in 1936. The first edition was printed in 1907!!! It's loaded with photographic plates in the back. Most are black and white but there's the odd color plate.

Anyone else find any interesting old goodies?
