Huntington, West Virginia. 1947. First Edition. 8vo. (8 x 5 ½). 342 pp. Photo frontispiece of the author holding his favorite pet 'Spots'-Spots is a young leopard and it's amazing the author's arms weren't shredded embracing the critter. Black and white plates. Yea, the Cape Buffalo is dangerous, but real death was provided almost always courtesy of those who hunted the beast. This book from the library of the late African big game hunter, Steve D'Arc with his bookplate; by the way, he wasn't done in by a buffalo. The book is bound in black cloth with white and orange titles. Some damp staining to the text and a few of the plates. It's not bad, but noticeable, otherwise very good.
