How it works


Published by The Batchworth Press. London. 1952. 1st Edition. 8vo (140 x 220mm). Ppxvi,208. B/w photograph plates, illustrations, rear end-paper map of the lower Malayan peninsula. Green buckram, spine titled in gilt. End-paper inscription, foxing to edges but good-plus in slightly worn and chipped pictorial dust-wrapper. Uncommon.

"Not so much an account of big game shooting as a natural history of the big game animals and, as such, will appeal to the more modern followers of big game who are less interested in collecting trophies than in observing or photographing the animals". Detailed observations of elephant, Sumatran rhinoceros, tapir and gaur/seladang, punctuated by stories of big game hunts. .
