How it works


First English Edition: 319 pages, sepia toned frontispiece portrait, lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, coloured map as end papers, 2 other coloured maps, cream cloth boards with black simulated leather spine, titled gilt on the upper cover and spine, a fine copy housed in a black slipcase which is also titled in gilt on the cover.

The limitation page reads: Two hundred copies of this collectors' edition have been published of which this is number 29 signed by the author.

Giorgio Grasselli is a well-known professional hunter. But, as the author emphasises, this is not purely a hunting book. It is also the story of his life in Africa, written with honesty, humor and often with irony.

The Italian edition was published in 2005
