A Zoo in My Luggage - Gerald Durrell

Rupert Hart-Davis, 1961, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper, several nicks and chips.

3rd Impression. [First Edition: 1960] From the cover: “This is the true and hilarious story of how Gerald Durrell and his wife set up their own zoo. Journeying to the Cameroons, he and his wife, helped by the renowned Fon of Bafut, managed to collect ‘plenty beef.’ Their difficulties began when they found themselves back at home, with Cholmondely the chimpanzee, Bug-Eye the bush-baby, and other founder members... and nowhere to put them.”
