Quest Under Capricorn signed by David Attenborough, 1st / 1st, 1963
London: Lutterworth Press, (1963).
SIGNED. First edition. This copy is near fine. It has not been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks, aside from a light crumpling at the tail of the spine. The text blocks are bright and white throughout, with light spots of browning present on the bottom side. The author’s signature is present on the title page and is without inscription. Overall, this is a near fine copy of a highly collectible title- one which is rarely found signed. The book tells of David Attenborough's four-months ' journey through the desolate and fascinating country, observing the many creatures that make this part of Australia such an intriguing place for a naturalist, such as immense herds of buffalo which, first imported to the Territory over 150 years ago as beasts of burden, have run wild and multiplied to become the most dangerous creature in the bush through which they roam.
