About this Item: Penguin, Harmondsworth, England, 1987. Softcover. Condition: Good. Reprint. Paperback This book is soaked in the sunshine of Corfu where the author lived as a boy with his 'family and other animals'.

The procession includes toads and tortoises, bats and butterflies, scorpions and geckos, ladybirds, glow worms, octopuses and rose beetles, Quasimodo the pigeon, the puppies Widdle and Puke, and of course the Magenpies 315pp Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

About this Item: Hart-Davis, 1956. 8vo., Third Impression; original green cloth, backstrip lettered in silver, upper board mildly sunned at extreme head and tail of backstrip else a very good, bright, clean copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter a little chafed at extremities and with minor loss (affecting lettering) at head and tail of backstrip. 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 in 1930s 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. Seller Inventory # 32446

About this Item: London: Rupert Hart-Davis, 1956, 1956. Octavo. Original green cloth, silver-lettered spine, pale green top edge. With the dust jacket, artwork by Ralph Thompson. Jacket torn at head of spine and back panel (with some loss), nicks, chips and closed-tears, a couple of old tape repairs to verso, pale tidemark to back panel and front flap, binding sunned at head and tail, pale tidemark at head of last handful of leaves and endpapers. A good copy, clean and sharp-cornered, with the Book Society Choice slip to front flap (pricing the book at 16 shillings) pasted over the original price of 18 shillings. First edition, first impression, of Durrell's "classic evocation of his childhood idyll in Corfu" describing "his forays on foot to look for wildlife, and the impact his pet scorpions and snakes had on the rest of the household"; it is the book "that brought him true fame and fortune" (ODNB). Copies of the first edition with the dust jacket - albeit somewhat compromised in the present example - are certainly not common. Seller Inventory # 144763
