Description

OUT OF PRINT Big Game Hunting book By Frederick Courteney Selous
STUNNING black leather book with gold gilt lettering and gold gilt giraffe print designs on cover and spine! 1988 by the Briar Patch Press

Originally published in 1908

A wide-ranging work that discusses everything from the coloration of African big game to the extinction of some species in South Africa. There are plenty of big-game hunting episodes, which Selous uses to accent his chapters on Cape buffalo, black rhinoceros, and lion, among others. Written at a time when there was a noticeable depletion of the great game herds, he becomes almost lyrical in his longing for the old days.

Only 500 Copies in existence! Full Leather. Foreword by Theodore Roosevelt. New intro by J Casada. 348 pp, ill, all edges gilt. An exceptional book on big game hunting by one of the best known hunters of the turn of the last century. Roosevelt was so impressed with the work that it is one of the few for which he wrote a foreword during his Presidency. One of the best in the Briar Patch African Collection. Fine in full leather binding
Many splendid illustrations by E. Caldwell

9 1/2 inches by 6 inches

GORGEOUS collector book in beautiful, near perfect vintage condition!

GREAT GIFT!

Comics we sent without any protection at all. Just in an envelope. Comics especially old ones should be taken care of because they are a lot more fragile.
