About this Item

First edition, the first issue with "Adventure" in italic on the upper cover and no other printings stated on the copyright page. Illustrated with 81 black and white photographs of the author's adventures. 8vo, in the publisher's original tan and dark brown zebra-striped cloth lettered on the upper cover and spine in dark brown, with photographically decorated endpapers of grazing giraffes. 376, index pp. Internally a clean, solid and fresh copy with little evidence of use, the cloth a bit mellowed, primarily at the spine panel. UNCOMMON FIRST EDITION of this wonderful and romantic account of the travels of Martin and Osa Johnson. From early humble beginnings in Kansas to adventures that included rafting in Borneo, tenting on safari, hunting in the Congo, dashes in Paris and New York, dealings with cannibals and head-hunters, bad humoured rhinos, lions, apes, Charlie Chapman, Jack London, George Eastman and the King and Queen of England to name only a few. Many of the photographs are exceptional in quality. The Johnsons are hard to define, they can be considered photographers, naturalist, explorers, marketers, conservationists, authors, feature filmmakers, scientists or anthropologists; and they excelled at all of these. The Johnsons piloted their own boats, flew their own aircraft, and recorded the first movie with sound in Africa. Osa was the second women to be featured on a 'Wheaties' cereal box.
