FINAUGHTY, William. Recollections of William Finaughty - Elephant Hunter, 1864-1875. New York: St Martin's Press. 1991.

8vo. Original cloth and wrapper; pp. 242; fine.
First edition in The Peter Capstick Library. Reprint of "One of the rarest of all African big game hunting titles." (Czech 56). Preface: "The narrative is practically in Mr. Finaughty's own words, either jotted down by him between visits or dictated to the present writer. It bears the stamp of truth, and those who know anythng of the country as it was in those days - missionaries, hunters, and others - will vouch for the truth of much that is here set down as to the bewildering supply of game and the prowess of the old hunters."
Czech p. 56.
