How it works


Hardback with deep red boards with gilt spine titles. First published by Heath Cranton in 1924. With fine dustcover.

This new work on elephants deals with the habits of the animals, some hunting adventures, and notes on their ivory, and gives much information regarding most of the pioneer hunters and their works. The book should prove useful, in fact indispensable, not only to men with some experience, but to all who are interested in the grandest fauna of Africa, as it is written by a man who spent many years studying African game in its natural haunts, and who writes from a full knowledge of his subject.

There are some excellent photographs, besides sketches, one showing the proper spots for vital shots, which should be most useful to the beginner, who has seldom any knowledge of the anatomy of the animals.

Illustrated with nine full page photographs, three line drawings and a chart. Title Frontispiece, Certificate, Pix, Dedication, New Introduction. xxv plus 221 pages text and illustrations.
