Murray, the executor of Samuel Baker’s estate, teamed with White to pen a biography of the famous African hunter, sportsman, explorer, and military commander. While they rely heavily on Baker’s books in their research, there is also considerable use of his journal articles, letters and other documents. They include details of his early life, his time spent in Ceylon, his exploration of the Nile Tributaries with his future wife (Florence), his big game hunting exploits, and his expedition to halt the slave trade. Original brown pictorial cloth lightly rubbed. Original endpapers firm and tight. Illustrated with plates and folding maps. Overseas postage about $35.
