1 Campbell, Sheldon Lifeboats to Ararat
London Weidenfeld and Nicolson 1979 0297776606 / 9780297776604 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
A Very Good+ clean, tight and unmarked copy with VG+ dustjacket which is not price clipped. Foreword by Gerald Durrell. 24 pages of illustrations. First UK edition. In this insider's explanation of zoos, the noted conservationist describes the life of a modern zoo, with a style as beguiling and colourful as the antics he celebrates. He describes the work and world of the keeper, the vet, the researcher, the curator and many more, and his astonishing animal lore ranges from aardvark to zebra, as he tells how zoo vets operate on the broken leg of an 8 foot komodo dragon and stitch the tongue of Krinkles the aardvark. He tells how fast one has to run to outpace a mamba, how to avoid being squashed by a mischievous elephant, and how to scare a Bengal tiger back into its cage. Abounding with incidents from major zoos around the world. **** NOT EX LIB **** 
Price: 8.00 GBP
