CIC - INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL FOR GAME AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION - GERHARD DAMM: This exclusive leather bound Sponsors’ Edition of the Caprinae Atlas is one of only fifteen handcrafted and cased sets. Beautiful to behold and unique, it will be the center piece of any library and the purchaser will be in royal company! On September 19th the authors Gerhard Damm and Nicolas Franco, both Life Members of WSF, presented the #1 set to His Majesty, King Juan Carlos I of Spain at the Zarzuela Palace. His Majesty, who also wrote the Prologue to the Atlas, was extremely pleased with this “Magnificent Book”. The two-volume CIC Caprinae Atlas of the World describes 96 Caprinae phenotypes, contains 130 detailed, full color distribution maps and more than 1,000 color photos from the wild and from collections of important museums in North America and Europe. The monumental work highlights the importance of science in connection with sustainable hunting and achieves the all-important conservation connection of field research, effective management, community involvement and sustainable hunting. Bodo Meier, a well-known German aquarellist, was specially commissioned to illustrate the dust covers of the standard edition of the CIC Caprinae Atlas of the World with a watercolor painting of a Pamir Argali group and a group of magnificent Kashmir markhor. The paintings are also lithographed as frontispieces in the Collectors’ and Sponsors’ edition of the Caprinae Atlas. DALLAS SAFARI CLUB THANKS GERHARD DAMM FOR THIS 100% DONATION. Gerhard Damm,
