Lower half of front and rear board edges have faint ancient damp stain Rear hinge tender but holding. There is a book-plate of a previous owner, and a gift dedication dated Christmas1907. Internally clean, tight and unmarked. A good copy of a VERY EARLY EDITION OF THIS EAST AFRICAN CLASSIC, published within two months of, and in the same year as, the sell-out first edition, with which it is identical. Loosely laid in is a long contemporary and very fulsome newspaper cutting review of the book, ending: "In all the books of adventure written since the days of Herodotus it would be hard to parallel such a story". Foreword by well-known hunter-explorer F.C. Selous. G11. 3rd. Imp. Cloth & Gilt. Good/No Jacket.
