What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
Originally intended to be published in weekly numbers, Frederick Selous' account of his time in South Africa after the disbandment of the Bulawayo Field Force ended up being so extensive that it formed this study.
Illustrated with a frontispiece and sixteen further plates and in text illustrations, in addition to a folding map at the rear. Collated, complete.
Selous was a British explorer and officer who was inspired by the writings of Doctor David Livingstone. He first travelled to South Africa when he was nineteen, and went to Matabeleland, where he took part in the First Matabele War in 1893.
Selous was shot in the head during World War One. His close friend, President Theodore Roosevelt, said that 'he led a singularly adventurous and fascinating life'.
With ten pages of publisher's advertisements to the rear, and a former owner's inscription a front blank.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Discolouration to back strip and board perimeters, with one bump to back strip head. Front hinge starting, with board holding firm. Inscription to a front blank. Internally, firmly bound. Pages clean and bright.
