William Baldwin

He only wrote one book, based upon 8 years' worth of hunting in southern Africa. The first edition is very rare.

1863 First Edition title-page

Neither the book to the left, nor the one above are in my collection.

I own a first edition in the original green cloth binding, as well as a first edition that has been rebound in quarter-leather with marbled boards.

The three photos below are of my copies of the first edition: in original cloth binding, and my rebound copy.

The London editions include numerous illustrations, including 6 color lithographs that are NOT in the List of Illustrations included in the book.

Only the first edition does NOT have the extra words added to the title: And Adventure.

Below is a Third Edition from 1894.
