Binding: Hardcover
Condition: As below

A scarce and very lovely Viking Largetype edition of My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell, issued by the Viking Press in New York in 1968. This is a first printing of this edition.

“This book is a happy combination of what a boy zoologist experienced in one of the most beautiful spots in the world, the island of Corfu, and a hilarious record of life in a family of dynamic individualists.”

This lovely large-type edition is hard to come by these days, with its striking, colourful turquoise jacket. This is a library copy in good condition except for some pen marks to its front end papers, as shown in last image, and its title page.
