    Just wondering if anyone has duplicate copies of the following Chester guides? I am looking for the 1994/1995 (Lion cubs cover) edition and the 1996/1997 guide (elephant cover, came in two color versions but would be happy with either) have been waiting for either to appear on eBay/Amazon etc for several months now without success... if anyone has either of these guides and would be willing to part with them then I'm sure a suitable swap can be arranged if there is something you are looking for. Just need these two for a complete set from 1982 onwards :) Thanks in advance

    Update - I have now managed to obtain a copy of the 1994 edition (lion cubs cover) following a long search. Eventually managed to locate a copy for sale in the United States

    Still very much looking for the later edition (elephants cover) if anyone has a surplus copy of either version of it - will swap for a guide of your choice or pay a reasonable price depending on condition etc

    The search is still ongoing for either version. Below is an image of the one of the guides I'm after. The earlier version (not pictured) has the same cover image but a yellow box for the title rather than the blue/green one below. I've now been searching for 5 years without success and believe me I've tried everything and everywhere I can think of in that time!

    Hi Nisha,

    I have this Guidebook in excellent condition. It is from my own collection, so no duplicate, but I would swope it for a guidebook I still try to get since many YEARS without any success...It is the 2005 and the 2006 Guidebook of the Georgia Aquarium, both with the same cover-a Belugawhale, but the first editon has also the writing"Inaugural Edition" on the Cover.

    If you could help me to get one or even both of them, I give you the Chester Guidebook ! For both GA Guidebooks, I give you more from my duplicates, of course.

    Ps:Forgot to say-I have both Chester Guides your are looking for-also the"yellow"elephant cover version.
