The Bafut Beagles - DURRELL, GeraldPenguin, 1967, Paperback.
Condition: Good. Slight spine crease.
The author succeeded in capturing a collection of very queer animals. In this book he has caught their spirit and humour. A supercilious toad, a hypocritical chimpanzee, or a wide-eyed baby galago innocently dismembering a locust, is for him a character as vivid and interesting as Jacob, his cook, or even the Fon himself. 203pp. Advertisements. Size: 18cm / 7" Paperback Jacket Designed by Jane Burton. Illustrated by Ralph Thompson.
