'I remember seeing the lion looking yellow and heavy-headed and enormous against a scrubby-looking tree in a patch of orchard bush and P. O. M. kneeling to shoot him. Then there was the short-barrelled explosion of the Mannlicher and the lion was going to the left on a run, a strange, heavy-shouldered, foot-swinging cat run. I hit him with the Springfield and he went down...' Returning to his love of the African continent and its wildlife, Hemingway captures brilliantly the thrill and excitement of the hunt for big game. In some of the most vivid, intense and evocative travel writing, and memoir of his career, he describes the vastness of Africa and the brutality of its 'sports', showing even in this slim volume why he was one of the great American writers of the twentieth century.

Good in Good jacket. An unusual copy of the 1935 1st edition, 2nd state (without the "A" on the copyright page). From the personal library of noted literary critic Maxwell Geismar (who, among other things, wrote the Introduction to Eldridge Cleaver's "Soul on Ice"). Geismar has heavily highlighted this copy--clearly his working copy--in color pencil and has made several extensive margin notes. (A fascinating glimpse into the working methods of a major mid-century American critic). A presentable, "starter" copy to boot. The boards are relatively clean, the binding solid, the dustjacket--in spite of a few chips and some creasing--is 95% present.
