The Bafut Beagles

( Ralph THOMPSON, illus. ) DURRELL, Geral

With Illustrations by Ralph Thompson.

THOMPSON'S FIRST ILLUSTRATIONS FOR DURRELL

Published: Hart-Davis, 1954

Stock code: 40566

Price: £124.00

The author's second book, the first published by the fledgling Hart-Davis and the first to be illustrated by Ralph Thompson. It was Hart-Davis who brought author and artist together in a partnership that was last for more than a decade and which included Durrell's finest work. Here we meet, among other characters, the irrepressible Fon of Bafut. VERY SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION.
