Description :

1933 London, 1st edn, 376pp, illus, end paper map. A very good copy nice and clean copy in original orange cloth with a rebacked spine. Introduction by H.C. Maydon. Very scarce book on Zambia. We almost never list this book as it is nearly always on somebody's "want" list and therefore never makes it till catalog time. Author spent 18 years in Zambia around Lake Bangweulu. Hughes arrived at the Lake in 1901 where he stayed until 1919. He guided various contemporaries on hunting expeditions. The most comprehensive book on Lake Bangweulu and its surroundings that we know of. Curiously, this the first edition is not dated. A few months later, also in 1933, a second imprint was issued this one was dated and is clearly marked as such. Either imprint is exceedingly rare and neither comes up for sale more than once every blue moon. A very good copy nice and clean copy in original orange cloth with a rebacked spine. 1933 London, 1st edn, 376pp, illus, end paper map. N° de réf. du libraire

Over the next decade, he explored and hunted around Lake Bangweulu and its attendant swampy region and the rivers Chambesi and Luapula. There are numerous hunting incidents, particularly after elephant, lion, buffalo, hippopotamus, and rhinoceros, with cheetah bagged near the Luena River . This is an excellent work of hunting and adventure with wonderful detail of the area (today's Zambia), and quite scarce. N° de réf. du libraire 40116
