9780312055035: The Recollections of William Finaughty: Elephant Hunter 1864-1875 (The Peter Capstick Library)

Dust jacket notes: "Taken from the years well before and during the Anglo-Boer War, one of the great, early ivory hunters told his adventures to a friend who owned the pioneer paper The Rhodesian Journal. Adventurer, rogue, and hunter extraordinaire, William Finaughty survived the death that awaited many early elephant hunters, bagging over five hundred tuskers in five years, as well as living through the intrigues with which the early South Africa was fraught. 'Bill' Finaughty even shot five elephants with four bullets, a feat that is typical of this book. That he hunted entirely with a muzzle-loading rifle adds a great deal of zest to this classic tale of which only 250 copies were printed, and less than half survive today. Peter Capstick, the editor, has one of them."
