    I am selling one of my rare trophy room books. This is a copy of the original first edition of Karamojo Bell's book describing his life elephant hunting back in the golden age of ivory hunters. The book is in very good condition overall with some rounding of the covers but the gold gilding is still shiny on the title sections of the covers and the pages are clean and crisp (see pics). There is a light inscription in pencil in the front cover. It appears to be someone's name and "Presented to Zoological Society" but I am not 100% sure. This book has been reprinted in several editions including a Limited Edition from the Safari Press this past year. However, this is your chance to own a very nice copy of the original First Edition that is now 95 years old.

    Price is $300 + $10 shipping (USA Only, may be a few dollars more for AK or HI). I can accept USPS MO or Paypal (please add 3.5% for Paypal). Please PM me with any questions. Thanks!

    That's a good price. Depending on condition, they start around $400 and can go north of $1500.
