MY AFRICAN JOURNEY
Big game hunting with young Churchill as guide; a travelogue of Britain's East Africa possessions written by the then-Undersecretary of State for the Colonies. The first English edition is particularly coveted for its handsome cover woodcut of the author posed beside a trophy rhinoceros. The more plainly-bound American edition, which utilized English first edition sheets, has no woodcut on its brownish-red buckram cover but is a far rarer book.
