Johnson, Osa.

London: Hutchinson & Co, 1942. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear.. London, Hutchinson & Co, [1942]. 22 cm. 192 pages with 74 illustrations. Illustrated Hardcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Martin Elmer Johnson (October 9, 1884 – January 13, 1937) and his wife Osa Helen Johnson (née Leighty, March 14, 1894 – January 7, 1953) were American adventurers and documentary filmmakers. In the first half of the 20th century an American couple, Martin and Osa Johnson, captured the public's imagination through their films and books of adventure in exotic, faraway lands. Photographers, explorers, marketers, naturalists and authors, Martin and Osa studied the wildlife and peoples of East and Central Africa, the South Pacific Islands and British North Borneo. They explored then-unknown lands and brought back film footage and photographs, offering many Americans their first understanding of these distant lands. (Wikipedia)
