DURRELL, Gerald (author). Birds, Beasts & Relatives. London; Collins, 1969.

8vo. Original burnt orange linson boards, lettered gilt to spine, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [x], 12-256; a fine copy without inscriptions protected by a fine, unclipped dustwrapper (30s) with mild dusting and toning, some fading to spine, light foxing to lower panel, one small tan mark (6mm) to upper panel and tiny nicks to spine ends and forecorners.
First edition. The natural companion to Durrell's humorous classic My Family and Other Animals being "all the best stories that misguided discretion led the author to omit from its predecessor" and the second volume in Durrell's popular Corfu Trilogy which was recently adapted for television, to great acclaim.
