“I want to let you know that the William Blew "History of Steeple-chasing" arrived safely in today's post. It is truly everything that I expected and more. The book arrived in good sound condition and all the color plates, which you said, were also in fine condition. I can't thank you enough for the highly professional service you gave to me. I hope that we may work together again in the future. Again, my thanks and very best wishes.”

A very positive experience.”

 John Kingsley Heath (1926-2011) was one of the last great African hunters who roamed Afeica from the east to the West, and from the South to the North, bagging record trophies during his long 50 years life as a professional hunter and guide and owner of Safari companies.

Hailed as one of the top 10 hunting books published in the 20th century, this large format book (appx.9x12") features hunting numerous great elephants with over 100 lbs ivory on each side, record rhinos and Buffaloes as well as Lions and Leopards -man eaters included.Peter John Kingsley Heath spent a lifetime in the African bush and assisted in bagging an incredible number of trophies for his clients. Profusely illustrated with color and black/white photographs and line drawings, bound in hunter green leather with matching leather slipcase, gold lettered spine, all edges gilt. One of the very best and elaborate African hunting books since James Mellon's African Hunter.
