Ppxvi,199. Skivertex hardcover with gilt title and DW. Colour & b/w photographs, map, photograph end-papers.

Near fine.

This is "an exciting, specialist book on lion hunting for the lion hunter by an expert lion hunter. It contains many thought provoking and valuable lessons, for example, on calibres, cartridges and why not to use an over-and-under double rifle. These are not boring cat hunts spent watching smelly bits of meat become even smellier but are, for the most part, all action, walk and stalk hunts. [they are] graphic, here, now and in your face stories where you can almost feel the rumbles of the lion's roar in your chest and smell his paint-stripping breath at the end of a close encounter. A number of them have made a previous appearance in one or other of [the author's] earlier books but each one has been re-written with a particular, instructional aim in mind. .You will enjoy every adventurous page of these exciting tales with some leopard and elephant hunting thrown in for good measure, when it complements the lion hunting action".
