DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
Zoo Quest to Guiana. THE AUTHOR'S FIRST BOOK: SIGNED COPY IN FULL MOROCCO
"Lutterworth Press, [1956]" "8vo., First Edition, with a coloured frontispiece, 3 coloured plates and 32 monochrome plates on 30; handsomely bound in full red morocco, boards with gilt frame border, back gilt with five raised bands, second and fourth compartments ruled and lettered in gilt, all other compartments ruled and tooled in gilt, a most attractive copy ideal as a gift or for presentation. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON TITLE. David Attenborough's first book (with a delightfully youthful portrait on rear dw panel), and the beginning of the much sought-after 'Zoo Quest' series. Well-illustrated and delightfully written, his early titles display much of the talent and infectious charm that has since made their author a naturalist, broadcaster and presenter of world renown. The series captures well the appeal of his first-ever television series 'Zoo Quest' that ran on the BBC from 1954-1964. It also gave rise, incidentally (in those far-off pre-computer days), to a highly popular board game! Signed copies of this first title are scarce."
