How it works


First edition. xii, 315 pages, 68 plates and 2 folding plates, errata slips tipped-in at pages 1 and 67. Rebound in half leather with marbled boards, titled gilt on the spine, a very good copy.

Czech: An annotated Bibliography of African Big Game hunting Books 1785 to 1999, page 269: A key book for both the novice and experienced hunters. Stigand and Lyell combine their encyclopedic knowledge of African big game to detail where wild game will be found, its habits and how to make vital shots on different species. Also of great interest are the life size hoof and paw prints, as well as illustrations of droppings. There is also an excellent chapter on rifles based on their own experiences.
