Adams, Richard ( SIGNED ) The Plague Dogs
London: Allen Lane in association with Rex Collings, 1977. Illustrated by A Wainwright. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo 0713910550 Signed by Author Dust jacket unclipped, complete in a clear protective sleeve. Illustrated brown cloth with bright gilt titling on spine and upper cover. Inscribed on "Yours sincerely Richard Adams" Will illustrations and diagrams by A Wainwright. xii, 461 pages clean and tight. With his first two novels, Watership Down and Shardik, Richard Adams has achieved world-wide acclaim. The Plague Dogs, his third novel, confirms his stature as a writer. It is the most exciting and moving book he has yet written. Set in the Lake District, it recounts the adventures of two dogs who escape from an establishment where experiments are carried out on animals for so-called scientific reasons. Both dogs have suffered horribly. Once free, they join forces with a fox and attempt to live wild, killing and stealing what they can. Locally, every man's hand is soon against them; and national alarm breaks out when it is learned that they may be carriers of the bubonic plague with which scientists at the research station have been experimenting. Detachments of the army with helicopter support, government officials, the police, journalists and naturalists bring the story to an exciting, satisfying and unexpected close. As with Richard Adams's other novels, the story can be enjoyed at any level from thrilling narrative to philosophical debate. At the core of this book is the tragic dilemma of dog fleeing man's cruelty yet constrained to rely on man for his survival. In part, the book is an exciting escape story; in part, an impassioned plea for a more sensitive, more responsible attitude towards the whole natural world. Richard Adams evokes the Lakeland setting with the precise knowledge of one who knows and loves it; and as a novelist he brings it before us in all its astonishing beauty. (Book ref. 130038) £29.95
