Epic Failure

Edinburgh: Willam Blackwood, 1939. First. Hardcover. 263 pp, ill, Dower, L. EPIC FAILURE 1939 London 263 pp, ill. Safari in Kenya and Tanganyika. For a mainly photographic safari this is good reading. They shot their own trophies to use as bait and then had to figure out how to set up the bait to attract the lions and leopards in the best possible angles. They had numerous encounters with lion, elephant, rhino and also buffalo and of course the plains game which they shot regularly. After the safari, it was discovered that much of the film was bad and many photos did not come out, hence the title. Will be enjoyed by anyone thinking of taking an adventurous photo safari. Lovely copy, signed by the author, bound in half leather, highly decorated in gilt with raised spine bands. Near Fine. Item #584
