Autobiography of Matthew Scott, Jumbo's Keeper plus Jumbo's Biography, are found together in one volume. We are so used to the adjective jumbo that we forget that the term comes from Jumbo, a very famous large elephant. The first part of the book tells of the "peculiar and checkered" life of his keeper, Matthew Scott, who was born, one of seventeen children, in England in 1834. After having worked in the menagerie on the estate of Lord Derby, he eventually became a keeper at London Zoo. Later, he travelled to France, to bring Jumbo, the elephant, to London.
In the Biography of Jumbo we learn all about Jumbo's arrival in London and his life as a celebrity there. Due to his fame, Jumbo along with Matthew travelled by sea to America where he was exhibited by Barnum. The book gives a real insight into Jumbo's varied life.
