A first edition, first printing published by Rupert Hart-Davis in 1956. A very good book without inscriptions in a very good unclipped wrapper with some chipping to the spine tips and corners. Some nicking to the edges.

The novel recounts the escapades of young Gerry and his eccentric family as they adapt to island life in the 1930s. The book is a delightful blend of natural history, family anecdotes, and vivid characters, including an array of exotic creatures. Durrell’s witty and charming storytelling captures the beauty of the island and the quirky dynamics of his family in a captivating and humorous manner.
