No dustjacket binding aged
Ernst A. Zwilling, one of the last white large game hunters of Africa, supported up to his death, 1990, the preservation of the animal world and landscape of the black continent. This book is the literary legacy of perhaps,the last white large game hunter of Africa, as well as being a talented writer and editor. The authors visit to the fabulous Sultan of Rei Bouba. Zwilling tells his adventures, simply and modestly, it is easy to see why he is revered as one of the most distinguished sportsmen his country has ever produced. The man who forbears to attack an elephant when it is asleep, and who prefers to face death from two fear-crazed lionesses with their young rather than shoot the motherbeast, has written a remarkable and memorable book that will earn the admiration of all who thrill to the dangers and triumphs of hunting big game.

Experiences in rural South Africa. ‘To own a place” in Britain you need to be wealthy. But in South Africa a place is possible for almost anyone. They speak there of “Coetzee’s place” or “Nel’s place” or “Smith’s place”; only they pronounce it “plek” and they mean a farm or a plantation. Looking forward to the coming of peace the South African Government has already expressed itself eager to welcome settlers and to help them with grants of land loans and advice. Naturally they think first of their own returning service men but they will also welcome others of the Empire. There is space in the vastness of South Africa for so many.'”

Small tears to dustjacket, better than representative pix, mylar covered, else G Cond
A "must have it" book for all collectors of rare african herpetological books. The authors experience in African Gig Game Hunting most notably the bizarre trade in crocodiles hunting in Nyasaland (now Malawi). Partly from the dust wrapper: Paul Potous seeks it in a flat bottomed boat on an African River, killing crocodiles at a distance of six feet. A professional hunter, he kills them for their belly-skins-skins which make leather that will last a hundred years-and remains quite undeterred by the knowledge that the crocodile, in his turn, kills more human beings than any other wild animal in Africa. A classic work.
