Slightly foxed else very good in poor dust-wrapper. This is Rehna Cloete's alternative account of an expedition described her husband, Stuart Cloete, in his book The African Giant. "This is the reasonably accurate story of a girl who got a great big diamond as an anniversary present. It was a rough diamond in the human shape of a White Hunter [with safari attached] - the guide, philosopher, and friend of anyone unwary enough to embark on an African safari. ."Tiny" came to new knowledge of herself (unbelievably brave and greedy), of the White Hunter's Code (the client rides on the side with the rhino dents), of a husband's love (he'd dare any danger to save the film in her camera). There could be no nicer husband, she says. There could be no nicer or more capable hunter than Bill. There could even be no nicer or more exciting trip, now that it's over." By any standard, a terrifically good book. Bookseller Inventory # 14382

Lacks dust-wrapper. ".In this book the concentration is upon panthers rather than tigers, a very different animal in his habits and quite different to deal with. But there are tigers as well, snakes and a great bull bison that survived a titanic battle with a tiger. These are no mere hunter's stories: thrills there are, but difficulties too, failures and disappointments. But the author, who has spent a lifetime in trying to understand the minds of jungle creatures, takes us into his confidence and explains the methods by which he has been able to rid the remoter [areas] of India of some of their most terrible enemies. In doing so he builds up a vivid picture of the forest scene, which no reader is likely to forget." Chapters include: A panther's way; The man-eating panther of the Yellagiri Hills; Old Munuswamy and the panther of Magadi; The black panther of Sivanipalli; Snakes and other jungle killers from Hyderabad; The big bull bison of Gedesal; The maned tiger of Chordi; The man-eater of Pegepalyam.

Ex library copy, usual faults but internally clean. Good reading copy, lacks dust-wrapper. "After nearly thirty-six years of big and small game shooting in India and Burma, I have been induced by friends to record my experiences and observations of the various animals encountered. I always think that in many book on shikar too much is devoted to the killing of the animal, and that its habits of life are not sufficiently described. The shooting of an animal is only actually of interest to the hunter. How many young men go out to the Colonies ignorant of everything relating to shikar, which most of them intend to indulge in? I hope, therefore, that this book will not only be of interest but a guide to them. It has been possible to preserve a fairly full diary of these hunting expeditions, and it is from this diary that this book has been mostly compiled." Chapters include: Manipur, its big and small game; The tiger and its shikar; More experiences with tiger; The man-eaters of Langtang; Elephants from above and below; Some encounters with leopard; The bison and its shikar; 'Still' hunting Indian rhino; The Indian buffalo and tsine; The Indian bear; Indian boar and his character; The ways of the wild dog; Deer hunting and observation - sambhur, hog deer, swamp deer, cheetul, thamin, Manipur deer, barking deer; Serow and black buck; Fishing in India.

When the professional hunters and safari crew of the 1930's returned home from the war, they found a country in need of a pick me up. They provided it by attracting film stars, millionaires and adventurers to Kenya and helped to kick-start its post war economy. In [this book], Miles Barratt recounts the change from hunting to photography, from utilitarian to luxurious, from months-long walking safaris to week-long heli-safaris. It is a story full of glamour, fun and excitement, illustrated with a spectacular collection of photographs and told in the words of the men and women who made the safari business what it is today.".

Item Description: Quiller. Wykey, Shropshire. 2014 1st edition. 4to (189 x 246mm). Pp192. Colour photographs and illustrations throughout. Mint in dust-wrapper. "David Jones has written a fascinating and comprehensive book on the history of gamekeeping since the inception of the profession in the late seventeenth century until the present time. He writes about all aspects of gamekeeping with chapters on training, pay, cottages, gamekeepers in wartime, loaders and loading, lady gamekeepers, gamekeeping throughout the UK and Ireland and also overseas, especially in the days of the British empire. There is an interesting section on the moorland gamekeeper which includes the memories of George Grass of Ramsgill. Gamekeeping not only contains a large selection of historic illustrations depicting the gamekeeperÆs work but also draws on oral and written testimonies from gamekeepers, contemporary newspaper cuttings and extracts from historic documents. With its comprehensive coverage and wealth of stunning illustrations, this book provides a unique insight into gamekeeping and gives an accurate record of gamekeeping in times past, something often neglected by other authors who have painted a much rosier picture of the gamekeepers life in bygone days, rather than a truthful one based on hard facts." Chapters include: The gamekeeper; The gamekeeping hierarchy; Gamekeepers' pay and perks; Gamekeeper training; The gamekeeper and his caste; Game preservation; Poaching; Pest control; Game shooting; Gamekeepers' cottages; The gamekeeper abroad; Gamekeeping in Scotland; Gamekeeping in Ireland; A country gentleman's country gentleman; Gamekeeping professional bodies; The moorland gamekeeper - memories of George Grass of Ramsgill; The park keeper; The lady gamekeeper - a rare bird; Gamekeepers in wartime; Loaders and loading; Beaters past and present; Game records.
