Book Description Trophy Room Books, Agoura, CA, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. 311 pages, 32 colored ill. Whether you are interested in classic or modern African big game hunting books (or both) there are hundreds of books described in this book. Eleven years ago Ken produced a much needed bibliography of African big game hunting books but it only went up to 1950. It was a success and sold out quickly. Many customers wanted a work that included books from the great hunting era of the 1950s-1990s. They finally have their wish. This book has almost double the number of entries as the first. It gives a complete physical description of the book, notes illustrations, presence of maps, mentions dust jackets. In addition there is description of the countries hunted, local where game was bagged and often the professional hunter's name is included.It includes stories of exploration and hunting, pioneer settlers and their hunting, etc. If they ventured into the African interior and wrote a book with hunting, it is mentioned here. This work is not likely to be surpassed for its historical and literary aspects and it will appeal to a broad market segments. As North America's premier dealer in antiquarian big game hunting books, we are proud to have published this bibliography. Seller Inventory # 3183
