About this Item

Quarto. This remarkable book has become very scarce. Revised and updated, this is Peter Beard's account of arriving in 1961 after graduating from Yale on land adjoining the farm of Karen Bixen (Isak Dinesen) where they developed a special relationship and he documented the people and the animals of East Africa. Over three hundred contemporary and historical photographs as well as dozens of paintings by Karen Blixen. While his focus is on the widespread destruction of the African elephant, he covers that part of the continent in a way that many travelers have never seen. A book that is both wondrous and troubling. Bound in olive green cloth stamped in blind, spine plain. A near fine copy in near fine pictorial dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 013758
