How it works


Millais, well known as a naturalist, illustrator, and big-game hunter, traveled to the Dinka territory in the Sudan. In the Sudd region, his party hunted reedbuck and kob but was unsuccessful in finding elephant. Continuing along the Nile valley, they bagged buffalo, hartebeest, and trophy roan. Perhaps his best chapter describes hunting buffalo and eland in the Bahr-el-Ghazal region. The illustrations, for the most part, are taken from Millais' excellent sketches." - Kenneth P. Czech: A Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books, 1785 to 1950.

254 pages including index, map, fifty plates. Light wear to original red boards, top of spine bumped with light wear to extremities; moderate foxing throughout.
