SINGH, Kesri. The Tiger of Rajasthan. London, Robert Hale, [1959].

8vo. Original boards with illustrated dust-wrappers; pp. 191; illustrated with plates after photographs by the author, minor abrasions to extremities of wrapper; a very good copy.
Rare first edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author in 1963 on front fly-leaf. A rather spectacular book with hair-raising photographs of marauding tigers, written by a high-ranking civil servant working for the Game Department fo Gwalior State. 'Many of his hunts were in pursuit of cattle-stealing tigers and man-eaters who were terrorising villages. But he also organised tiger shoots for many of the Maharaja's famous guests, including the late King George V' (inside front flap).
