1981. Books of Zimbabwe. Hard Cover. Book-VG. DJ-VG, protective covered. 8.5x5.5. 455pp. Many b/w illus-some folding. This is an acknowledged classic on wildlife and hunting on both sides of the Zambezi. It spans nine fascinating years (1871-80) in the life of Selous, a legendary 'great' of the decade prior to the formal occupation of the country which became known as Rhodesia. The work presents one of the best descriptions of the life of an African big game hunter yet is also one of the richest records of the fauna of that period.
