How it works


Some of Foran's memoirs were discovered among his effects and combined to form this book. He fondly recalls the heady days of elephant hunting and poaching in the Lado Enclave and other areas from 1890 to 1911, with additional episodes of hunting rhinoceros.

This is the sixth book in Amwell Press's African Hunting Heritage Collection. Signed and numbered 943 of 1000 copies.

8vo.xxi plus 312 pages. Coloured frontis plus eight plates printed in recto and verso. Black leather with gilt spine titles and decorations, with gilt elephant head on upper board. With slipcase.

Source: Czech: Pages 99-100.
