Five Years of a Hunter's Life in the Far Interior of South Africa

London: John Murray, 1856. Second Edition. Hardcover. with notices of the native tribes, and anecdotes of the chase of the lion, elephant, hippopotamus, giraffe, rhinoceros etc. 381 & 388 pp, ill, map. Cumming went to the South African interior for hunting and discovered vast herds of plains game as well as large, dangerous game. He hunted many elephants, as well as lion, rhino, buffalo and even more elephants. This is a classic of African hunting & exploration in the days when the big game herds were seemingly endless. Brown gilt and blind ruled cloth. Internally nice but the gilt binding shows wear at corners, spine tips and tears in spine cloth especially at rear hinges. All the gilt is present and this would certainly be a fine candidate to rebind. All tissue guards present and remarkably free of foxing. Good. Item #4108
