More Information
Gerald Durrell, born 1925 to 1995, was the brother of Lawrence. Gerald wrote mainly travel and natural history books. His work has always enjoyed a popular following. The books are also reasonably collectable. Early first editions in original dust jackets fetch reasonable sums, but by now means prohibitive for the dedicated collector. Later titles are relatively easy to source and need not be overly expensive. English editions precede their American counterparts in all cases, with several seeing no American release at all.
