This is a very nice First US Edition hardback of "Queen of Shaba" by Joy Adamson of "Born Free" fame. Sadly, Adamson was killed shortly after she turned in the manuscript for this book.

"Queen of Shaba" tells of Joy's interaction with Penny, a female leopard that Adamson hoped to return to the wild. The leopard is identified here as the most unpredictable and dangerous of the wild cat family.

Book includes many color and b/w photos, as well illustrated map end-papers.

CONDITION: Very good in dust jacket with mylar/plastic cover. No writing or stray marks. Jacket and book crisp and clean. Not ex-libris.
