My Family and other Animals. [Illustrated - (Ralph THOMPSON) Gerald DURRELL - 1956. 
Hart-Davis & Book Society,, 1956. 8vo., First Edition thus, neat contemporary signature on front free endpaper; original green cloth, backstrip lettered in silver, green top (faded as usual), a very good, bright, crisp copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter lightly sunned at backstrip and chafed at head and tail. Undoubtedly the author's most sought-after work, Durrell's unsurpassed first volume of autobiography is a twentieth century classic. His wonderfully written and often hilarious recollections of childhood and natural history on Corfu are augmented by Ralph Thompson's splendid dustwrapper artwork. The Durrell-Thompson partnership, prose perfectly complemented by illustrations, enhanced all the early Durrell works published by Hart-Davis. VERY SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION.
