True-to-life tales from the 50's

Here is a set of "True-to-life stories" written by R.W. Eschmeyer in the 50's ~ six educational and entertaining tales about "fish and game animals and how they are managed for a better hunting and fishing future." As I neither fish nor hunt, I was attracted to these books because of their vintage look and funky illustrations in two colors. The illustrations are drawn by several artists: Roy K. Wills, Francis W. Davis, Maynard Reece and Edwin Fulwider ~ I liked the ones by Roy Wills the best as they are the most stylized ~ a few are shown below.

Don't know if I will ever get around to actually reading the books, but at least one of the titles would make a great name for a porn star!
