About this Item

First edition, a very early issue, identical to the first issuance printed two months earlier. Illustrated with numerous black and white photographs, eight maps in the text, and one full page map. 8vo, publisher’s original navy-blue cloth with gilt lettering on the spine, pictorial vignette of a native scene in gilt on the upper cover, t.e.g. xiv, 389, 2 ads. A fine and bright copy, internally unusually fresh and near pristine, the cloth with some minor mellowing along the back edges, but the spine uncommonly vivid with no fading and the gilt bright and sharp. SCARCE IN FINE CONDITION. Somewhat of a companion volume to the author's MAN-EATERS OF TSAVO, this book gives a plain account of "the trials and adventures which befell me on two recent expeditions through the 'nyika,' or wilderness, in British East Africa. "On the first trip there were three of us, and all returned safely to civilization, although dangers were not wholly absent. On the second and longer expedition there were also three Europeans, but, alas! only two got back, the 'nyika' having claimed the third; nor was the god of the wilds content with this sacrifice, for, in addition, he claimed several of my native followers." Includes quite a bit on rhino and lion hunting, as well as other sporting adventures. Bookseller Inventory # 26668
