First UK edition. Text and photographs by Peter Beard. This book is a chronicle in words and pictures of the gradual and remorseless destruction of the central symbol of Africa's life - the animal. In a series of unique photographs the elephants, giraffes, hippopotami, cheetahs, water buck, zebras, and lions of Africa are shown living in a state of natural grace and dying with majestic courage.


4to, orig. green cloth. Vg in d/w. Small blind ownership stamp of Col. Ray Nightingale to endpaper, with his numerous neat, marginal ink annotations to text. Nightingale (1921-200) was born in Northern Rhodesia, served in the Kenya Regiment, King's African Rifles, and in the 1970s he was attached to the Sultan of Oman's Army. The book is annotated by Nightingale with references of considerable interest, enlarging upon Beard’s text, often with first-hand accounts of animals, people and places discussed in this work.
