All the Mammals of the World has two clear antecedents, with which it shares many of its goals, especially that of spreading and promoting interest in mammals and wildlife worldwide: the Handbook of the Mammals of the World series in 9 volumes, the first printed work to include all the mammals of the world; and the Illustrated Checklist of the Mammals of the World in two volumes, which provides a taxonomic review of the previous publication.  All the Mammals of the World in a single volume aims to bring the extraordinary richness and diversity of the world’s mammals closer to a wider audience.
