Czech Africa, pp. 138-139: "One of the most famous of all big-game hunting epics, this, with its larger than life sportsmen, was almost continuously in print until the 1930s. In British East Africa, Roosevelt hunted lions and plains game on the Kapiti Plains, while, in the Bondoni hill country, he collected rhinoceros and giraffe ... on the Kamiti River, buffalo were taken. Near the Sotik, additional rhino and lion were hunted, with elephant bagged near Mt. Kenia ... Roosevelt's total bag was enormous even by the liberal standards of that era." Gee "Sportsman's Library," p. 63. Still a good copy. Original gilt-stamped illustrated green cloth (hinges cracked, spine ends a little frayed). (8760). Item #61771
