About This Item

First edition, first impression (Collins, 1981). Signed by the author to the dedication page with a heart drawn around the name 'Lee' in the author's hand. Lee McGeorge Durrell is the author's second wife who, in addition to co-authoring books with her husband, is also a naturalist, zookeeper, and television presenter.

Publisher's original green cloth with lettering to spine in gilt. Boards are lovely, clean and well-preserved, as are the contents with just a little faint dustiness to top edge.

The original and unclipped dust jacket has slight fading to the spine panel with one instance of creasing to spine head and tiny area of abrasion to spine foot.

An excellent, near fine copy overall.
