African Hunting From Natal to the Zambesi by William Charles Baldwin, one of the early hunter/explorers in South Africa and beyond. Originally published in 1863. This copy is a recent reprint of Baldwin's classic by Franklin Classics (see photo of back cover). Copy is like new, unread condition.

African Rifles and Cartridges by Taylor needs no introduction. This the 1993 reprint by the Gun Room Press. The book is fine condition other than a few edge tears on the dust jacket.

$25 each shipped in the CONUS via USPS media mail. Buy both $45 shipped. Checks, MOs, or PayPal.

Yes, they broke the mold when John Taylor came into being. However, some of the details in his book are not always accurate, but then who cares - the reading is still great and most of the info is spot on. I have a first edition and a special bond edition as well. I also highly recommend Pete Capstick's biography of Taylor "A Man Called Lion."

As you read Pondoro and African Rifles and Cartridges, keep a running list of the doubles he says he owned. For a gent who didn't have a pot to pee in, the list is quite impressive. Regardless, his books are among my treasured readings.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
