Descripción John Murray, London, 1967. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Poor. No Jacket. The story of the establishment of one of the earliest of the African reservations and the problems encountered with poaching, particularly the ;poisoning of elephants. These problems became more insistent during the Mau-Mau troubles. Murray hardback with no DJ. This is an ex-library book with all the defects to be expected. Thus :there is a number on the bottom of the spine, the remnants of labels on the reverse of the front cover and ffep, a stamp on the title page, some numbering on additional fore pages, occasional stains on pages. More importantly two of the black and white photograph pages are loose although all the numbered photographs throughout the book are present. Binding good. A rare book but here in poor condition and priced accordingly. Nº de ref. de la librería 001064

Descripción 1967. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Fine. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition.. THE ELEPHANT PEOPLE. John Murray, London 1967, first edition, 226 pages, illustrated with B & W photographs and two maps. The first real contact between white men and the elephant people of Kenya, the Liangulu, came about when Tsavo was declared a national park in 1948 Though some earlier explorers had mentioned them, it was not until the park wardens started work that any clear picture of the tribe began to appear. William Woodley and the Park's team managed to make contact and win some of the Liangulu over. They learned about the tribe's superb physique, their use of a big bow unique in Africa with a heavier pull than the English longbow, their deadly akocanthera poison, and the key role they played in the illicit ivory traffic. There are no marks or inscriptions. Dust jacket is price-clipped otherwise jacket and book are Very Fine. $250.00. Nº de ref. de la librería T30938
