The Graham McCallum books are a wonderful resource for anyone designing, imagining or even looking for a variety of ideas in one place. This is a big heavy book, with indeed 4000 drawings in it. he calls it a Sourcebook and I agree.
The contents are divided in an interesting way. Instead of by animal, fish or bird types, it is organized by age or style or I am not sure by what but it is interesting:
Stone Age Europe
Mesopotamia: neolithic, sumerian, hittite, assyrian, babylonian, persian
Aegean: minoan, mycenaean, cypriot, greek
Chinese Nomadic Steppe Culture Celtic Barbarian Byzantine Medieval Islamic South American Cultures Japanese Arts and Crafts Art Deco

First Published in 2005 by Batsford, the wonderful publisher of so many of these books in London. I don't know which reprinting this might be. It is a matte cover paperbound book with 382 pages.
This has become a rare book and the prices have risen accordingly based on condition. This is a former library books from the Pittsburg, PA. It is in good condition. It has clearly been used, the cover and the cut ends of the pages are worn. The pages inside are very good as is the spine which is important in a book this thick.
I do not have an inside page picture yet. I will post one as soon as I take it.
