Description :

2004 Long Beach, 325pp, profuse color and b&w photos, limited to 50 numbered, leatherbound, clamshell cased copies signed by Prince Abdorreza and Bill Quimby. Book and slipcase in near new condition, in addition this copy INSCRIBED by HIH Abdorreza at the SCI convention of 2004 which was the only time he made an appearance to sign this book, shortly be fore his death. In addition although 50 books were supposed to have been made of this leatherbound edition, only 31 were ever bound because 19 signature sheets were destroyed accidentally in transport to the binder. Prince Abdorreza was the first hunter after WWII to hunt Marco Polo sheep in Afghanistan and the Russian Pamirs, an expedition that lasted over 7 weeks and took dozens of yak and men. He was privileged to hunt some of the most unusual animals on earth for the National Museum of Iran: Arabian tahr; Siberian tiger; all subspecies of markhor; just about every sheep in Asia, and all the sheep of Africa, Europe, and North America. He holds numerous world records and has more trophies entered in the Rowland Ward and Boone and Crockett record books combined than any other person. His list of accomplishments is so long: no less than four expeditions to the Pamirs after Marco Polo sheep; pioneering hunts in the Tian Shan of China and Siberia as early as the 1970s; all the spiral-horned antelope of Africa; no less than twelve tigers; the walia or Ethiopian ibex; banteng in Indonesia; and gaur in Nepal. The Prince has hunted with the greats of the big-game hunting world such as Syd Downey, Pinnell & Talifson, Jack O'Connor, Elgin Gates, and Herb Klein. James Mellon accompanied the Prince on several expeditions, and some of the hunts these two men experienced in Oman, Pakistan, and Peru will never be repeated. Not a person to rest on his laurels, he accelerated his hunting when he well in his 70s! His last hunts included wild yak and chiru antelope in Tibet, a 65-plus-inch kudu, and was been trying for a 50-inch buffalo. This royal-blue leather bound edition is limited to 50 copies, (numbered 1-50) stamped with the crest of HIH Prince Abdorreza. It has hand marbled end papers and is housed in a linen clamshell box, lined with hand-made marbled paper. Book and slipcase in near new condition, in addition this copy INSCRIBED by HIH Abdorreza at the SCI convention of 2004 which was the only time he made an appearance to sign this book, shortly be fore his death. In addition although 50 books were supposed to have been made of this leatherbound edition, only 31 were ever bound because 19 signature sheets were destroyed accidentally in transport to the binder. 2004 Long Beach, 325pp, profuse color and b&w photos, limited to 50 numbered, leatherbound, clamshell cased copies signed by Prince Abdorreza and Bill Quimby.
