Book excerpt: "The Zoo is a unique, fascinating, and often amusing, history of London Zoo illustrated with over seventy colour and black and white images." "London Zoo had its beginnings in 1826 when Sir Stamford Raffles founded the Zoological Society of London. The Crown had leased part of Regent's Park to the Society and the press excitedly anticipated the coming of the 'ark' to London. The stage was now set for the world's first truly scientific zoo." "In addition, the author recounts the history of Whipsnade Zoo (also founded by the Zoological Society of London). It was a completely different type of zoo and, in common with its forerunner, was the first of its kind in the world." "Many people who contributed to the London Zoo over the years are included, such as Bartlett the first superintendent, Peter Chalmers Mitchell and Julian Huxley, Jack Lester, George Cansdale and Desmond Morris." "The Zoo charts the history of London Zoo from its precarious beginnings, through the highs and lows including the threat of closure - to its secure footing today and its setting of ever better standards for zoos around the world."--BOOK JACKET.
