Reprint of the 1894 edition. Cloth. Oversized Octavo. Book xiv, 335 p., [1] folded leaf of plates : ill., map ; [London : Chapman & Hall, 1894]. The author spent four years in the Congo Free State and kept a detailed record of his travels and sporting adventures. His observations are bed. He focuses as much as possible to matters of sport, and not to matters relating to the Free State. The author notes that no book devoted to West African sport had yet to appear as of the time of original publication [1894]. Bailey used his nom de plume, Bula N'Zau [The Elephant Smasher]. "Bailey arrived at Grantville in 1884 and proceeded into the interior of the Congo on an expedition of sport and exploration. Initially he hunted Gorillia, then proceeded up the Rembo River where hippopotanmus and leopard were hunted. In the Massabe Swamp, buffalo and antelope were bagged. At Stanley Pool, and later near Brazzaville, hippos and elephants were collected
