THE WANDERINGS OF AN ELEPHANT HUNTER.
Country Life. London. - 1923 1st edition. 4to. Ppx,188. B/w plates by the author. Publisher's brown buckram-backed boards. End-papers browned but a very good copy. This is a classic of big game hunting literature, and deservedly so. It is also essential reading for those interested in the history of colonial Africa or the history of the elephant, and a good read for anyone with a taste for adventure and human and elephant psychology. WDM 'Karamojo' Bell "was known far and wide .for his extraordinary elephant-hunting exploits in the Karamoja Province of Uganda and elsewhere. [This book] considered by many to be the greatest of all elephant books by the greatest of all elephant hunters, is a series of elephant-hunting essays and stories during the glory days of Bell's career. It gives Bell's experiences in Uganda, the Sudan, Ethiopia, Central Africa, and West Africa. Foremost and elephant title, [this book] also includes tales of derring-do with buffalo and lion." Like many author-adventurers of the colonial era(s), Bell was an interestedand sympathetic observer of the peoples amongst whom he lived, and he includes many observations of interest on contemporary society and politics. A book of great interest, and a terrific read. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
