Doctor Dolittle’s Zoo, 1966, Hugh Lofting, Like New! – SOLD –


Out of stock


~ SOLD ~


Written and illustrated by Hugh Lofting.  It was first published in 1925.  This particular book was printed and bound in Great Britain by Butler & Tanner Ltd in 1966.  It is the nineteenth impression and is book number 5 in the Doctor Dolittle series.

The condition of the book is impeccable, and this 1966 copy is not common.  All of the pages inside are clean and tight to binding as if the book were new.  The binding colour is baby blue.

Here are two different mainstream Synopses of the  book:

1. The adventures of a kind-hearted doctor, who is fond of animals and understands their language. Seeing that many of his animal friends want to live with him, Dr. Dolittle changes his zoo collection from rather unusual animals to native ones and immediately runs into trouble.

2. In the book, Doctor Dolittle returns from his voyages and sets his house in order. This includes expanding his zoo to include a home for crossbred dogs and a club for rodents. The doctor also takes time to solve a mystery with the aid of Kling, the Dog Detective
