Originally published in the early 1900s. this extremely scarce hunting book is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition; we have now republished it using the original text and photographs. This is an enthralling true account of Frank Weber's first hunting trip along the White Nile in the Upper Sudan. Accompanied by a lifelong friend and experienced hunter he sets forth from England via Trieste and Alexandria, through Cairo to Khartum, then joined by native guides and bearers, they begin their hunt along the banks of the Nile. Equipped with double .470's, light magazine rifles, a 10 Bore, and shotguns, they seek to take a number of specimens from the area's big game population. Their list of quarry include elephant, buffalo, eland, ibex, waterbuck, various gazelle, kob, "e;Mrs Gray"e;, crocodiles and hippo's. etc. Fifty four pages are packed with exciting anecdotes of their often dangerous attempts to bag specimens of each of these. The book also contains a number of early black and white trophy photographs and an area map. The author professes to be a novice hunter, but guided by his more experienced companion ends the safari with a fair share of the total bag. This small book is a fascinating record of early big game hunting in one of the more inaccessible hunting grounds of Africa, and will prove of much interest to all sportsmen and historians of that era. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
