13. Zoohistorica Wuppertal 2002
The 13th International Meeting of Collectors of Zoo Literature and Paraphernalia
Wuppertal, 6. - 8. September 2002
Second Circular (August, 2002)
About 40 participants from eight countries have signed up to date for the 13th Zoohistorica. Because of the high number of requests for stall tables, the trade fair on Saturday morning (the 7th) will be held in the great ape house. The zoo school would be too small to accommodate all those requesting stall space. That means that we'll have the same situation we had two years ago in Münster: a trade fair in an area open to the general public. That will have the advantage of potential customers coming around by coincidence, passing through, and the disadvantage that everyone will want to clear the building at the end of the trade fair and take their possessions to a safe spot before their lunch break. That will be the zoo school, which is not far. If the weather on Saturday is sunny with no chance of rain, we can put up shop in the courtyard in front of the zoo school as well as in the building itself. Either way, all participants requiring stall space should use the back entrance of the zoo at the end of Boettingerweg. That little street goes off Hubertusallee to the right just beyond the football stadium; you'll see the inn called "Zum alten Kuhstall" on the corner. At the end of the street, after perhaps 220 yards, you'll find the back entrance and ample space to park your car. Participants who have not requested stall space can use the same entrance or the zoo's main entrance at 30, Hubertusallee. Those using public transport will find that the zoo has its own monorail and commuter train stations, both called "Zoologischer Garten".
The rest of our programme hasn't changed since the first circular was issued.

First Circular (March 2002)
The 13th Zoohistorica will be held, as agreed upon last year in London, in Wuppertal, Germany, this September. The director of the Wuppertal Zoological Garden has kindly invited us to hold our trade fair there, and to get a good behind-the-scenes impression of the zoo. An old and well-established inn 170 yards from the main gate, immediately adjacent to the car park, is our venue for the evening buffet and auction. At the suggestion of Dr Schürer, Wuppertal's zoo director, the proceeds of the auction will go to the "Berggorilla- und Regenwald-Direkthilfe", a widely respected conservation society doing excellent work helping to protect mountain gorillas and their habitat. The inn also lends itself to the Friday evening get-together for all participants arriving a day early. The AquaZoo in Düsseldorf 20 miles from Wuppertal has offered to show us around behind the scenes of that newish aquarium and aquatic mammal menagerie on Sunday. Here's the programme in detail (with the right to modifications reserved):
