London Zoo From Old Photographs
Here you will find some of the earliest photographs of living birds, fish, giraffe, camel, rhinoceros, thylacine etc., as well as all the known photographs of Jumbo the elephant, a living quagga and other extinct and rare species.
The photographs which are accompanied by full and detailed captions provide a fascinating window on the vanished world of London Zoo in the Victorian and Edwardian period, when, perhaps more than any other collection, it formed the bridge between primitive manageries which preceded it and the scientifically operated, conservation oriented zoos of the 21st Century.
This is the second edition of this work, first published in 1996. Approximately two hundred images from the first edition have been retained and two hundred fresh ones have been added, making a total of about four hundred photographs in all.
