Signed copy by Joy Adamson

Perhaps you have seen the 1966 feature film Born Free.  If so you would know of Elsa, the lioness raised by Joy and George Adamson and released into the wild in Kenya.  Or perhaps you’re familiar with another famous Lion.  A Lion Called Christian which became an overnight sensation when old footage of Christian was posted on YouTube. 

Elsa, The Story Of A Lioness contains the much sort after photography from Joy Adamson’s book Born Free.  Born Free is the first of a trilogy of books on Elsa’s life and release into the wild (Born Free was followed by Living Free and Forever Free respectively).  Our particular copy of this book at Novel Lines book shop is a 1962 reprint and has been signed by the author Joy Adamson.  

Signed by the author, Joy Adamson

 It is a special book and the bond between Elsa and Joy is beautifully captured with the black and white photos covering each page. 

[Available through Novel Lines eBookshop; $55.00AUS, Hardcover, b/w plates, 4to, cloth, in like dust jacket and now protected]
