Description:

L. M. Nesbitt. Hell-Hole of Creation The Exploration of Abyssinian Danakil. NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1935, 3rd. printing, xii, 382 pp., Index (viii), colophon. *** The Danakil region of Ethiopia is one of the consistently hottest places on our planet. Nesbitt, two Italians, some natives, and a few mules comprised the first European caravan to traverse the region and live to tell about it. During their 800-mile trek the explorers encountered frequent temperatures in the 140's and 150's F, and at times were 300 to 400 feet below sea level. Nesbitt's journal provides vivid descriptions of the region's flora , fauna, the strange traits and customs of its savages, and the unrelenting topography and landscapes. With sixteen (16) half-tone photo plates, some with two images per plate. *** Bound in orange cloth boards and spine with black ruled decoration on the front cover, the same with black lettering on the spine. Original color illustrated Dust Jacket (price clipped) is in a clear protective cover. The covers are clean with very light wear. The jacket has moderate soil overall, a bit heavier along back joint, moderate wear with a little chipping at corners and top of spine. The contents are clean and complete in a good binding. *** 8.75 inches tall by 6 inches. Bookseller Inventory #
