Bound in bright red cloth, gilt titles on spine and a woodcut illustration of Churchill standing by a dead rhino, blocked in blue, grey, and black. xiv plus 226 pages. Profusely illustrated with 61 photos taken by Churchill on his trip through British East Africa and then on down the Nile, undertaken in his position at the time of Under Secretary of State for the Colonies. Churchill demonstrates a sensitivity to the Africans that way ahead of its time. The photos are tipped in rather than bound, so copies should always be collated to verify the presence of all photos and maps.
