The African Collection as published by the Briar Patch Press in the late 80s and early 90s presents many of the finest works ever penned on Africa and her great game. Anthologies were deliberately avoided in favor of depth and detail, and the publisher did a fantastic job with the particulars. Each volume is leather bound, has a hubbed spine and marker ribbon, and is printed on acid-free rag paper. Each of the 22 books is in virtually new condition. Titles include A Breath from the Veldt by John Millais, Sport in Somaliland by Count Joseph Potocki, Lake Nagami by Charles Andersson, On Safari by Abel Chapman, The Nile Tributaries of Abyssinia by Samuel Baker, The Wanderings of An Elephant Hunter by W.D.M. Bell, The Hunting & Spoor of Central African Game by Denis Lyell, East Africa and Its Big Cats by John Willoughby, The Recollections of William Finaughty, Elephant Hunter by William Finaughty, The Wild Sport of Southern Africa by William Cornwallis Harris, Elephant Hunting in East Equatorial Africa by Arthur Newmann, In Haunts of Wild Game by Frederick Kirby, After Big Game in Central Africa by Edouard Foa, A Game Ranger’s Note Book by A.
