How it works


Walmsley flew for the British during the East African Campaign of World War I, including flights around the Mt. Kilimanjaro region, Rufiji, and Lake Nyasa. When not gallivanting through the clouds, he took time to hunt lion and elephant near Lake Nyassa, and also gazelle and eland (Czech, p. 293). Original blue cloth with black titles. Spine ends a little frayed, and marking and rubbing to rear cover. Original endpapers are well age-tanned. Colored frontispiece, photo plates, and map plates.
