How it works


Quarter bound boards with unclipped dustover.

Finally available in a new, high-quality reprint is one of the rarest books on African hunting. Major G.H.Anderson was a professional hunter and a founder of the East African Professional Hunter Association. This book is regarded as one of the classics on elephant hunting in which the author tells of his elephant-hunting experiences in Uganda, British East Africa (Tanzania), the Belgian Congo (Zaire), and the Congo.

It includes three chapters on the ivory hunting days of his longtime friend Jim Sutherland. Then there is more hunting in German East Africa, the Belgium Congo, and a chapter on man-eaters. Anderson shot some very big ivory, including a monster elephant with tusks weighing 134 and 136 pounds.

This version includes a new foreword by Tony Sanchez and the original art-deco elephant on the dust jacket! A fantastic book for anyone interested in African hunting.
