Nilgiri Sporting Reminiscences

Madras: Higginbotham and Co, 1880. First Edition. Hardcover. 157 pp, 26 ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHIC PLATES TIPPED IN. In southern India's Nilgiri Hills for ibex, sambar and spotted dear, also hunting tiger, leopard and, of course, elephants. There are stories of other hunters and some bison (gaur) hunting. A really good book, rare because it so many hand tipped in orig. photos that likely a very small number were printed. VG to vg+ in orig. gilt and printed cloth. Corners and spine tips showing some wear, small tear in top left spine (no loss of cloth), some spotting of covers (more so on rear). The pages where photos have been tipped in show some waviness where the glue tightened. Really better than all this sounds. Nevertheless a RARE work. VG to vg+. Item #4921
