Title: Official Guide to the Gardens of the Zoological Society of London. Twenty-Fourth Edition. CLEAN COPY IN THE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS
Description: "Offices of the Zoological Society of London, 1926" "8vo., Twenty-Fourth Edition, with very numerous sepia-toned photographs (many full-page), wanting the double-page map as usual; original printed wrappers, wire-stitched as issued, covers very lightly dust-soiled else an unusually well-preserved , clean copy. With trade advertisements at front and rear. Compiled by P. Chalmers Mitchell, the early issues of this famous guide are remarkably comprehensive, describing in some detail not merely the creatures themselves but their background, context and status. The design and architecture of the various buildings and enclosures is fascinating, and there is a full alphabetical list of species to be seen. Even without the map, a scarce survival."
