Item Description: National Geographic. Washington D.C. 2002 1st edition. 8vo (155 x 235mm). Ppxii,276. Colour and b/w photographs. Black cloth spine over brown paper-covered boards, spine titled in gilt. Fine new copy in dust-wrapper. Made famous by J.H. Patterson's Man Eaters of Tsavo, the lions of this area are larger than usual, and the males maneless. This book examines their history and describes recent field studies. "A riveting adventure travel narrative that tracks four scientists attempting to unlock the secrets of these fierce man-eating lions, Ghosts of Tsavo is filled with face-to-face encounters and narrow escapes and celebrates the beauty, stealthy cunning, and awesome strength of these elusive, magnificent beasts." "I finished the Ghosts of Tsavo in a sweat. Combining a compelling scientific puzzle and a terrifying history along with dazzling descriptive passages and a few slapstick episodes of contemporary adventure, this book - even at its most contemplative - literally consumers the reader. It is a man-eater." (Tim Cahill). Chapters include:- The man-eater of Mfuwe; Legends; A trip to the museum; Chasing the chimera; Why the man-eaters did what they did. (Previous price £19.95).

Rather grubby with several thumbprints throughout. Covers laminated. A good working copy. With contributions by Rod Hutchinson and Vic Gillings. Whilst tackle has obviously moved on since this book was written it is still of great use to the modern carp angler. A lot of good stuff on why rigs work (or indeed why they don't) and on carp behaviour when confronted with a baited rig. It is also a good reference to the slightly older rigs which, though they may have gone out of fashion, are still just as effective today as they were twenty years ago. Well worth a read for the thinking carp angler.

Item Description: Angling Publications. Sheffield, Yorkshire. (2008) 2010 reprint. 8vo (155 x 217mm). Pp272. Colour and b/w photographs, b/w illustrations. Black boards, spine titled in silver-gilt. Corners bumped else fine unread copy in dust-wrapper. "Autobiographical compilation of Rod's published and unpublished material covering his formative years. and his carp-fishing exploits from the early sixties to the late eighties. Some of the material was originally written in the early sixties and has never previously seen the light of day. .Rod has [subsequently] added to these chapters as his memory has been stirred, or [as] he has felt a need to fill some of the gaps. The balance of the book consists of some of Rod's most enduring anecdotal material published in monthly angling magazines through the seventies and eighties. Material covering Rod's carping life beyond the late eighties will appear in the second volume. [This present volume] traces the development of Rod's carp addiction with searing honesty, and much humour, but in the process it also covers the development of carp fishing itself over a period of almost fifty years, from the largely uncharted dark ages of the early sixties onwards. The book is, in turn, touching, irreverent, hilarious, exciting, informative, and eye-opening. Most importantly it is a stunningly entertaining read and an absolute must-have addition to any angler's bookshelf. Simply put there never has been, and never will be, a greater carp-fishing story-teller than Rod, and here is a book packed with the great man's exploits and his greatest anecdotal material." Chapters include:- First memories; First trip; Outing; Tenchy Ted; School days; Opportunity taken; Expelled; Aftermath and early jobs; Cinema visit; Hooked for life; Maggie; Courting disaster; Carp session, first mirror; A year's experience; Marriage; Transport traumas; Employment traumas!; The rock 'n' roll years; The cruel sea; Harpo Hitler and Smelly Belly; Pinetrees pool passion; Pinetrees preoccupation; Kent calamities and carp; The way ahead.

Corners bumped else fine unread copy in dust-wrapper. "The first volume of Rod's Ramblings - aka Carp Along the Way, a sort of autobiography - ended with Rod speeding down to Savay in the early '80's.". Volume two takes up where volume one left off, describing Rod Hutchinson's carp fishing career through the eighties and nineties "although dates don't really matter." The background to volume two is formed by "his two great eighties books The Carp Strikes Back and Carp Now and Then. Rod was at his most prolific fishing-wise and writing-wise during that decade and the material here [fills in the background to it]. What with having a home life, running a business and creating Woldview [his famous syndicate water], it is remarkable that Rod found time for trips down south and abroad." The author explains how he did it all and retells countless anecdotes of his adventures from this period. Chapters include:- 1985 interview; A dream come true; Wildies; Last month's TV; A day in the life; Woldview; Big un; A cappella (unaccompanied); New adventure, part one; New adventure, part two; Funny old year; More friends along the way; Ramblings of a man in panic; Crazy carp at St. Genez D'Olt; Sessions on Woldview; Still smelling the roses; Here we go again; Return to the valley; Every picture tells a story; Just mates; The Big O, and a squatter repellent; Glimpses of the past; Mally - first trip; What a man's gotta do; Shoot out at Crazy Jane's.

Dark blue faux leather boards, spine titled in gilt. Mint in dust-wrapper. "Don Cowie is a knowledgeable naturalist who knew the names of all the trees and birds before he left school. He began his working life as an officer with the Southern Rhodesian Department of Customs and Excise, stationed at the Beitbridge border post. Already an experienced hunter, he soon became sought-after by the surrounding cattle ranchers who needed his assistance with problem animal control. There Don gained considerable experience in the hunting down of problem dangerous big game. These were cattle-killing big cats, elephant that damaged water installations, and thirsty buffalo that created right of ownership problems at the drinking troughs. Although the cropping and marketing of the game products like meat and skins for profit was perfectly legal in Southern Rhodesia, sport hunting for profit was not and that include safari hunting. When the Henderson brothers started their own safari company in Botswana, they hired Don as their professional hunter during the six-month safari seasons. During the off-season Don returned to the ranch to continue his game cropping and marketing. This changed in 1967 when sport hunting on a game-ranching permit finally became legal in Zimbabwe after a long fight with the government. At that point the Hendersons moved their safari operation to Southern Rhodesia".subsequently teaming up with Brian Marsh to form Henderson & Marsh Safaris. Chapters include:- My early days; Hunting the Limpopo Valley; Preservation or conservation; The nitty-gritty of game ranching; Some game ranching tales; Interesting times; Botswana; Reptilian encounters; My first safari; Behind the scenes; The Art and Sam Weller safari; A tragic suicide; Sitatunga hunting; The most dangerous animal in Africa; Rhinos and orphans; Matabeleland game safaris; The last of Hazel's big five; The advent of Henderson and Marsh safaris; The saga of Henrietta; Farewell to Doddieburn.

Good copy in slightly used dust-wrapper. "The aim of this book is to provide some ideas and useful ways forward for those who are facing the challenge of intergrating woodland and deer management in lowland England. The author's purpose is to help deer stalkers, deer managers and those charged with estate and woodland management to define deer management priorities and develop effective and practical approaches to them. It is possible to accommodate recreational hunting within a successful deer management scheme in woodlands, but only if the requirements of the chosen woodland management system are given precedence. This is an alternative to lowland deer management. It will help landowners, land agents, forest managers, stalkers or deer managers to define and meet their own objectives within a general framework of guiding principles." The foreword is by Rod Leslie. Bookseller Inventory # 36469
