Return of the Crazy Bird: The Sad, Strange Tale of the Dodo
By Pinto-Correia, Clara
Pp. xv, 216; 35 black-and-white illustrations and maps. Publisher’s original green spine over dark gray boards, lettered in gilt on the spine, brightly colored pictorial dust jacket, lg 8vo. This is the hardcover first edition. The author tells the intriguing tale of a bird that has gone extinct but hasn’t gone away. Unlike many of the dodologists before her, Pinto-Correia not only relates the fascinating story of the Dodo, but draws a stunning picture of those who discovered, destroyed, immortalized, and, only much later, understood the Dodo (modified from the blurb on the rear dust jacket panel). No ownership marks and no signs of use.
