Rowland Ward himself was supposed to have said that this book "was the nicest sporting book I ever published." A superior publication with the plates depicting hunting scenes with rhinos, lions, leopards and antelopes. Illustrations are superb and worth the price of the book alone. Czech says "One of the rarest of all African big-game hunting books. A sumptuous work, this volume recounts the 1895 safari of Polish aristocrat and sportsman Potocki and his comrades to Somaliland’s Haud region, then into the Ogaden. The party bagged elephant, lion, leopard, rhinoceros, aoul, (Soemmerings gazelle), hartebeest, and beisa (oryx). The excellent art-work in the book is from the talented Polish illustrator Piotr Stachiewicz." A solid very good copy in original cream-colored buckram cloth binding, with the large lion head stamped on the front cover. Neatly rebacked spine. 1900 London, limited to 200 numbered copies signed by Rowland Ward, folio size, 139pp, 58 colored illus, 18 full page photogravures (5 double-page), 7 text figures, color fold-map.
