How it works


Lyell, a noted African big game hunter, provides rules for hunting big game, as well as chapters dealing with rifle selection and tracking game. The remainder of the text examines the natural history, traits and methods of hunting, species by species. The illustrations consist of sketches of the spoor of game animals, many being life sized.  An essential work aimed at a generation of new hunters visiting Africa at the time.

Original tan cloth with gilt spine titles. Cloth beginning to lift from the boards. Original end papers firm and tight. Contents clean and tight. Well illustrated with drawings of spoor, droppings and animal heads. A large book with international postage from the U.S. about $35.
