Light green cloth with a red leather title label on the spine. Only a hint of edge wear. Top edge gilt. Book plate from the Newark Book Society which seems to have been a gentleman's club to share books; not a library. This is an early and important hunting book , much on elephants, before Samuel Baker became an explorer of the Nile. He was in Ceylon 1845 to 1855. Inside, exceptionally clean and tight, with no browning and no foxing. Now quite a scarce, and sought after, book. Protected in a clear, mylar sleeve.
