Obaysch: A Hippopotamus in Victorian London tells the story of Obaysch the hippopotamus, the first ‘star’ animal to be exhibited in the London Zoo. It is a meticulously researched and richly illustrated account of the 19th-century hippomania, set in a broader context of the cultural history of Europe.
