There has been a huge number of books written about zoos in general and about certain zoos in particular. There are many others, some of which are so specialised that there are of little interest to the general reader and, of course, new books are appearing all the time. Several of our members have published their own books. In addition, almost all the larger zoos, as well as many of the smaller ones, publish journals, annual reports, newsletters or other periodicals of one kind or another. As is only to be expected, they vary considerably in quality, but many are well worth seeking out for the information they provide.
Lists compiled by Russell Tofts - additional contributors are acknowledged by their initials.
Dates given are for first editions unless stated otherwise. Many of the books have since been reissued by different publishers.
Opinions expressed are those of the compiler and do not necessarily reflect the views of Bartlett Society members as a whole.
Our intention is for this list to be as complete as possible; please notify us of other titles that you believe should be added to the list.
