    Hi Riziki, unfortunately I have already dispersed the majority of those guidebooks - including the Twycross '89. All I have spare at the moment are:

    Cotswold Wildlife Park, 2006.
    Living Coasts, 2003.
    Paignton Zoo, 2003.
    Marwell, 2004.

    Also:

    Animals on View, hardback edition (1977) - An Illustrated Guide to Britain's Safari Parks, Zoos, Aquariums and Bird Gardens.
    They Dined on Eland (1992) - the Story of the Acclimatisation Societies

    and I might have a spare copy of Schomburg's Penguin Guide to British Zoos.

    If you, or anyone else, is interested in any of these titles then please let me know.

    All the best.

    Hi Paradoxurus,

    I am interested in Animals on View (1977). I don't have a big collection of guide books or other books to offer as a swap, but if you are interested in any of these, please say:

    Blackpool Zoo - 2000 - Gorilla face (blue)
    Bristol Zoo - 1996 - Okapi plus inset of children
    Bristol Zoo - 2001 - Young red ruffed lemur
    Chester Zoo - 1994 - Cheetah
    Cotswold Wildlife Park - 1992 - Red panda
    London Zoo - 1994 - Tokay gecko
    Marwell Zoo - 1995 - White rhino
    Marwell Zoo - 2002 - Young jaguar
    Paignton Zoo - 1996 - Tiger
    Port Lympne - 1997 - John Aspinall with black rhino and calf
    Port Lympne - 2000 - John Aspinall with gorilla, tiger and elephant calf
    Twycross Zoo - 2004 - Orangutan
    Whipsnade - 1992 - White rhinos silhouetted against sunset
    Whipsnade - 2002 - Asian elephants
    WMSP - 1994 - Lioness

    Also:

    Cry of the Kalahari (1986)
    S.O.S. (Save Our Species) Gorilla (1990) - this is a children's book
    Wild mammals in captivity: principles & techniques (1996)
    Kishina: a true story of gorilla survival (1996)
    Talking with animals, hardback edition (2002)

    This is a long shot, but does anyone have a spare Belle Vue Zoo (Manchester) guide? My husband is fascinated by David Taylor's stories of being a vet there and would love to have a guide.

    Thank you :)

    Belle Vue Guides do sometimes occur on Ebay so i would look on there but they are very sought after and can reach to very high prices especially on bid due to the age and the collection.
    Sorry thats probably not much help at all.
    Regards

    Hi Mhale,

    Animals on View is yours. Drop me a PM with your address and I will post it to you this week. Could you send me a scan of the WMSP Lioness guide cover? I think this is the only one I do not already have.

    Many thanks.

    Hi Paradoxurus,

    I couldn't send you the scan by PM because your inbox quota has been exceeded, so please find it attached here instead :) Sorry for the quality of the scan.
