Animal Days

By Desmond Morris

Jonathan Cape, Great Britain, 1979. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. This is the first UK edition. 275 pages. Boards have no wear, rubbing or soiling. Dust jacket has superficial rubbing. Edges of dust jacket have light bumping. Pages are reasonably tanned. In this irresistible personal history the author of The Naked Ape and Manwatching tells the touching and often hilarious story of his early animal days. Long before he wrote his bestsellers son human behavior, Desmond Morris had already become a familiar figure in homes all over Britain as presenter of Zootime, one of the most popular natural history series ever to appear on television. His headquarters at London's Regent's Park Zoo was not merely a site from which to delight millions of tea-time viewers with a daring attempt to pick up a deadly scorpion by its tail or a tumble off the back of an elephant, but it was also an experimental outpost where he was able to follow his serious studies in animal behavior. Animal Days opens with a shy young boy who, while everyone else was dancing in the streets, celebrated V. E. day by observing a colony of rooks. Such single-mindedness was not to diminish in future years when applied at Oxford to the study of the ten-spined stickleback gaining inspiration from great ethologists like Niko Tinbergen and Konrad Lorenz. These sober endeavours in the life of an aspiring young naturalist were in stark contrast to the gastronomic tour of France made in the company of the giants in his field which, recalled by Desmond Morris, is a masterpiece of controlled farce. After that he was ready for any eccentric celebrity, including the monster in teddy-bear's clothing Kruschev presented to the baby Princess Anne, the chimpanzee Congo who ignited a blazing controversy in the art world and the confused panda Chi-Chi who preferred Desmond Morris to her Russian spouse An-An. As Curator of mammals at the Zoo, life was quite bizarre as it had been in front of the cameras, not least when a whale turned up in the Thames at Kew Gardens or when a pair of ferocious bears absconded and began their freedom celebrations with the destruction of a lavatory. With charm and abundant wit Animal Days records a remorselessly eventful period in Desmond Morris's life and concludes with his decision to turn his attention - at least for the immediate future - to the fascinating business of manwatching.

No Foot, No Horse : Foot Balance: The Key to Soundness and Performance

By Gail & Deacon, Martin Williams

Kenilworth Press, Great Britain, 1999. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine. 144 pages. Boards have no wear, rubbing or soiling. Dust jacket is in excellent condtion. Dust jacket is unclipped. Dust jacket is protected in clear, plastic sleeve. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition except for previous owner's name in ink. This text explains why everyone involved in horse management should understand the principles of correct foot balance and the repercussions of good, bad and indifferent shoeing. Studies show that up to 95 per cent of all horses have some form of foot imbalance which will predispose them to injury. Common problems that can be attributed to faulty foot balance include: bad backs; bruised heels; hoof cracks; shortened stride/stumbling; arthritis; navicular disease/syndrome; chip fractures; sheared heels; and degenerative diseases. The book describes how good basic farriery, particularly through paying attention to foot balance, can be used to maintain and even enhance performance and soundness in the horse. It explains how to check the horse's medio-lateral balance with the aid of a T-square, as well as how to assess the hoof/pastern axis and what to look for when picking up the foot. The authors also discuss the connection between poor feet and bad backs, and show how skilled farriery can give horses with less-than-perfect conformation the best chance to stay sound.

Two in the Bush

By Gerald Durrell

Fontana, Great Britain, 1973. Reprint. Paperback. Good. 220 pages. Covers have light creasing. Corners of covers are lightly bumped. Spine has moderate lean and moderate reading creases. Pages are reasonably tanned. Previous owner's name in ink. Two in the Bush is a record of the six-month journey which took Gerald Durrell, his wife Jacquie, and two cameramen through New Zealand, Australia and Malaya. The object was, first, to see what was being done about the conservation of wild life in these countries, and, secondly, to make a series of television films for the BBC. They were introduced to many rare and remarkable animals - Royal Albatrosses, Tuataras, Duck-Billed Platypuses, Flying Lizards and Long-Nosed Bandicoots, as well as to some equally unusual humans. Anyone who has read The Overloaded Ark, The Bafut Beagles or The Whispering Land will have enjoyed Gerald Durrell's enthusiastic adventuring and his delight in the absurdity of the situations in which he finds himself. His observation of animal - and human - behaviour is always informative and often hilarious. 'Delightfully readable and often very funny.' Daily Mail 'An account of Gerald Durrell's tour of New Zealand, Australia and Malaya in search of rarities . . . Easy to read, difficult to put down, with many vivid sidelights on the human side of the expedition.
