List Price: $22.00;  Price: $15.40.).  Ostensibly is about the first giraffe to be taken to France - a gift from a despot to try and gain favor in an upcoming war, anyhow, it was walked from Marseille to Paris where it then lived in the Jardin des Plantes.  But it also really goes into the plundering of Africa circa 1800 - depressing but fascinating.  (Review by Peter Bowler).
