Description:

First edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. 8vo, publisher’s original brown cloth lettered in gilt on the spine in original pictorial dustjacket. 221 pp; appendixes. A fine copy of the book, the dustjacket with a bit of rubbing to the edges and small repairs to the back. FIRST EDITION. "Many of the chapters of this absorbing book deal with the hunting, catching and taming of those beautiful but invariably maligned creatures, snakes, The descriptions of the capture, in circumstances of great urgency, of a magnificent Green Mamba in the top most branches of a hundred-foot mango tree, makes perhaps its most exciting episode; the the reader may be even more thrilled by incident concerning the poisonous Gaboon Viper, the Spitting Cobra, and the aquatic snakes that are caught by night in the light of pressure lamps. C. J. P. Ionides, the subject of the biography, is a sixth generation Briton whose family came from Greece in 1840. His reputation as a naturalist is known worldwide. Since 1945 he had specialized in herpetology, but long before that he had achieved immense prestige as a hunter and a collector of wild animals. Some of the best of his rarity hunts, fraught with many bitter frustrations, harsh conditions, and the most difficult of African terrain, are described in a way that can only enhance his skill, fortitude and unrelenting love of wild animals." From the dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory #
