Yesterday I spend a few hours at a summer fate and found a ÂŁ0.50p bargain on the second hand book stall.

A 2nd edition hard back copy of On The Track Of Unknown Animals by Bernard Heuvelmans – they cryptozoologist bible!?

The dust jacket is a little scruffy, but apart from that the book is in perfect condition, and even more exciting, there were a number of press clippings and two issues of Bigfoot News from 1976 inside 🙂

On the Track of Unknown Animals is a cryptozoological book by the Belgian-French author Bernard Heuvelmans that was first published in 1955 under the title Sur la Piste des BĂȘtes IgnorĂ©es. The English translation by Richard Garnett was published in 1958 with some updating by the author and with a foreword by Gerald Durrell. It is credited with introducing the term cryptozoology.[1]

On The Track Of Unknown Animals can still be bought online – Amazon UK and Amazon US (referral links).

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
