In Unknown Africa

London: Hurst & Blackett, 1904. First. Hardcover. 619 pp, ill, map. Twenty months' travel and sport in unknown lands and among new tribes. (Author also wrote A Sporting Trip through Abyssinia.) Author for many years held the record for the largest set of tusks ever taken by a sporting elephant hunter. He has more trophies in the early editions of Rowland Ward record books than any other hunter. This, his rarest book, contains all his early hunting adventures when he pioneered in opening up new hunting country throughout eastern Africa. Much on elephants. One of the best books on the subject. VG+ in original bright blue gilt pictorial cloth. Corners very slightly bumped. Some rubbing on bottom edge. Front endpaper separated but hinge is firm. Much better than this sounds. VG+. Item #5960
