Rowland Ward's Records of Big Game with Their Distribution, Characteristics, Dimensions, Weights, and Horn &Amp; Tusk Measurements - Ninth Edition
Rowland Ward, Limited, 'The Jungle', Piccadilly, London. 1928, 5th or later Edition. Hardcover, with dust jacket. 523 pages (complete). An extraordinarily diligent, detailed record of Big Hunt bags. Among the dukes, princes, lords and majors in this volume are the hunting records of the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth) during an official safari visit to East Africa in 1924. This is a hearty, huge book of much historical interest. The cloth cover is affable with wear and scuffing. The gilt titling is benign. Within, the contents have foxing but are otherwise assured and confident. The pages are tight, sepia tinted, well ordered, tidy and gruffly elegant and handsome. fk. Fair/No Jacket.
