|Lofting's first book of his most famous series about the medical man who could converse with the animal kingdom was The Story of Doctor Dolittle, first published in 1920 in the US and by Jonathan Cape in the UK in 1922. A second, reset, edition appeared shortly afterwards, and then a third which saw the price reduced to five shillings. This ReproJacket is from the eighth printing of that edition, despite declaring itself to be the 12th impression on the spine.
