For Sale Trophy Room Book - A Hunter's Wanderings In Africa By FC Selous First Edition 1893

If you decide to let go of that copy. I would be interested.
Didn't mean to jump in the thread, but @Kevin Peacocke is that a chocolate lab rolling on the zebra skin.

Vette447, I will be heading to Zim summer of 2024, so I could be the long term plan. BTW, what part of Oklahoma. I have a house in Edmond.

Just for fun, here are a few photos of my "keeper" copy of this book. Sadly, this one is not for sale:

This one is inscribed by Selous to his friend E.N. Buxton. Seems Mr Buxton was a well known conservationist and was well connected within colonial Africa. At Selous' suggestion, Teddy Roosevelt enlisted help from Buxton in planning for his 1909-10 safari. Numerous letters back and forth between Roosevelt and Buxton discussing plans for the safari can be found in the US national archive.
WOW what an amazing book ... a keeper for sure.
Thank you all for the kind comments.

Traveler, I am close to Edmond in the OKC metro area.
Oh if only. Excellent book and what a dream book for sure.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
in-between all the bush fire, hunting and work on the hunting area its hard to find time for fishing as well

I ran across a message from you a couple of years ago while I was going through old emails. I have arranged a second bison hunt in Nebraska in September 2024, about 6-years after the first, when my supply of bison meat was exhausted. My email is [redacted].
