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.
