Item Description

Large 8vo. 6.5 x 9.5 inches. x + 294 pp. Title page in red and black. Bound in original orange cloth, gilt. Fore edge deckled. Spine sunned and a little edge spotting; otherwise a very good clean copy. Pictorial bookplate of Alice and Milford Sorley. Illustrated by 61 pages of black and white photographs by author, including frontispiece. Pictorial front endpaper. An account of the 1928 safari in Kenya made by the US film making couple, Martin (1884-1937) and Osa Johnson (1894-1953). The pair travelled around the South Pacific area and Africa filming until Martin died in an air crash, their work being continued by Osa into the TV age. Their names still resonate today, in a museum in Chanute, Kansas, a brand of clothing and a chain of stores. Parts of the book previously published in magazines.
