Ralph THOMPSON, illus.). Gerald DURRELL
My Family and other Animals. [Illustrated by Ralph Thompson. Third Impression]. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR
Hart-Davis, 1956. 8vo., Third Impression; original green cloth, backstrip lettered in silver, green top, tiny fade mark at extreme head of backstrip, a few spots of fore-edge else a near fine copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter very lightly chafed (not affecting lettering) at head and tail of backstrip. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON TITLE. Published in the same year as the first edition. 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. SIGNED COPIES ARE RARE IN THIS CONDITION. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Vendeur: Island Books [Thakeham, West Sussex, United Kingdom]
