London: John Lane the Bodley Head Limited, 1923. First edition. Illustrated with numerous fine photographic plates. 4to, in the publisher's original blue cloth, gilt-lettered on the upper cover and spine. xiv, 309 pp. A very nice copy, very well preserved, the blue cloth fresh with just a little edge rubbing, gilt very bright, internally quite clean with just a little mellowing or spotting to the prelims. FIRST EDITION AND A lovely large quarto volume that features a profusion of photos of animals in their natural habitats, with a brief (usually one page) description of each. The Prince, cognizant of the rapid development that was overtaking much of wild Africa, sought to preserve a visual record of the wild game of that continent. All of the photos are "in situ," with the exception of the photographs of the mountain gorilla, which at that time had never been photographed in its natural surroundings.
