Description: This is a very rare Churchill item that Big Game bibliophiles have made almost impossible to find. The author accompanied Churchill on his 1908 "African Journey." The frontispiece photo here shows Churchill with the author in the bush, and Churchill's extended introduction states that this book, "brings vividly back to me mellow and charming recollections of British East Africa and Uganda."
This is a very good copy, without dust jacket. The spine is faded and a trifle shelfworn, the covers are beautiful, ornate orange and gilt, a lovely period binding. A bookplate is affixed to front pastedown, along with a small vintage numeral sticker.
