Elephant slaves and pampered parrots: exotic animals in Eighteenth Century Paris. Louise E. Robbins.

Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 2002. Octavo, text illustrations. Sunned spine, otherwise a fine copy in dustwrapper.

Robbins considers nearly every aspect of France's obsession with exotic fauna, from the vast literature on exotic animals and the inner workings of the oiseleurs' (birdsellers') guild to how the animals were transported, housed and cared for.
