The Exultant Ark - a pictorial tour of animal pleasure, Balcombe, Jonathan
3 Balcombe, Jonathan The Exultant Ark - a pictorial tour of animal pleasure
Berkeley University of California Press 2011 0520260244 / 9780520260245 Cloth As New Very Good 
Very well illustrated, quarto, pp x, 214, a very good copy in a dustwrapper showing only the very faintest signs of use. [Nature documentaries often depict animal life as a grim struggle for survival, but this visually stunning book opens our eyes to a different, more scientifically up-to-date way of looking at the animal kingdom. In more than one hundred thirty striking images, "The Exultant Ark" celebrates the full range of animal experience with dramatic portraits of animal pleasure ranging from the charismatic and familiar to the obscure and bizarre. These photographs, windows onto the inner lives of pleasure seekers, show two polar bears engaged in a bout of wrestling, hoary marmots taking time for a friendly chase, Japanese macaques enjoying a soak in a hot spring, a young bull elk sticking out his tongue to catch snowflakes, and many other rewarding moments. Biologist and best-selling author Jonathan Balcombe is our guide, interpreting the images within the scientific context of what is known about animal behavior. In the end, old attitudes fall away as we gain a heightened sense of animal individuality and of the pleasures that make life worth living for all sentient beings.]

Baboon Metaphysics - the evolution of a social mind, Cheney, Dorothy L. & Seyfarth, Robert M.
11 Cheney, Dorothy L. & Seyfarth, Robert M. Baboon Metaphysics - the evolution of a social mind
The University of Chicago Press 2007 0226102432 / 9780226102436 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Good 
A few illustrations, large 8vo, pp x, 348, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [n 1838 Charles Darwin jotted in a notebook, "He who understands baboon would do more towards metaphysics than Locke.". Baboon Metaphysics is Dorothy L. Cheney and Robert M. Seyfarth’s fascinating response to Darwin’s challenge. Cheney and Seyfarth set up camp in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, where they could intimately observe baboons and their social world. Baboons live in groups of up to 150, including a handful of males and eight or nine matrilineal families of females. Such numbers force baboons to form a complicated mix of short-term bonds for mating and longer-term friendships based on careful calculations of status and individual need. But Baboon Metaphysics is concerned with much more than just baboons’ social organization—Cheney and Seyfarth aim to fully comprehend the intelligence that underlies it. Using innovative field experiments, the authors learn that for baboons, just as for humans, family and friends hold the key to mitigating the ill effects of grief, stress, and anxiety. Written with a scientist’s precision and a nature-lover’s eye, Baboon Metaphysics gives us an unprecedented and compelling glimpse into the mind of another species.]
