William Charles Baldwin, Esq , F R G S
African Hunting From Natal to the Zambesi Including Lake Ngami, the Kalahari Desert, &c. from 1852 to 1860
A very rare 1863 first edition, first printing, signified by the lack of the words "and Adventure" following "African Hunting" on the title-page. The second edition, and subsequent editions, include "and Adventure" on the title-page. The folding map is present and in great condition, and is marked "London:Richard Bentley,1862." The illustrations that are called-for on the List of Illustrations are all present except for one (page 39). The First Edition also included 6 color lithographs that are NOT called-for on the List of Illustrations, or anywhere else in the book that I can determine. This copy has all 6 of these color illustrations, though some of them have been cut from the original plate and mounted on a new page when this book was rebound. This book has been rebound in the original boards, for the stamped relief of the original illustration to the front board can be faintly seen if held to the light. The board's original stamped illustration was "Narrow Escape," one of the color illustrations present in this copy. The Index is present. The original publisher adverts are not at the end of this book.
