SELOUS, Percy & H.A. BRYDEN. Travel and Big Game. London, Bellairs and Co., 1897.

Tall 8vo. Original green illustrated cloth; pp. 195, with 6 excellent collotype plates by Charles Whymper; very occasional light spotting, a very good copy.
First English edition. Czech: "Frederick Selous' cousin, Percy, describes hunting wildebeest, leopard, lion, and giraffe, near the Molopo River, with additional leopard hunting in Bechuanaland. He enjoyed sport after rhinoceros near the Zambezi River, and hippopotamus and kudu on the Limpopo River. Bryden contributes 2 chapters, including hunting Giraffe and Zebra in South Africa, while relating the adventures of a Dutchman [unnamed] hunting buffalo." Heller: 'This edition is scarcer and a bit nicer than the American edition published the same year by Longmans'. This beautiful volume contains as well episodes of hunting in the Rockies.
