In 1826 a young Giraffe, named Zarafa, landed in the port of Marseilles. She was a gift from Mohammed Ali, Ottoman Viceroy of Egypt, to King Charles X, to (hopefully) stop any interference from France in his war against the Greeks. Zarafa became an adored celebrity in her own right, and this book tells of her stately walk from Marseilles to Paris and of the life she led, poetry and fashions inspired by this visitor from Africa.
