How it works


Blunt was an elephant control officer in Tanganyika, hunting primarily in the Linda Province. He details the natural history and biology of the elephant, relates his experiences as an elephant cultivation officer and big game hunter and provides an excellent chapter on past and present elephant hunters. "I am sure that an elephant looks on human beings in the same way as we look on a dangerous insect." A classic of African elephant hunting." Bound in Publisher's textured cloth with large gilt elephant head on upper board, gilt spine titles barely legible. Cloth scuffed as usual. "Review Copy" stamped on the free rear endpaper, thus issued without the ads. Small Rowland Ward label on front pastedown. Previous owner has underlined several passages in red on about a dozen pages. Well illustrated with photo plates.
