FRANCIS, J.[OHN] C.[YRIL] Three Months' Leave in Somali Land.
London: R.H. Porter, 1895. First edition. Publisher's blue cloth with gilt. 8 3/4 x 6 inches; iv, 96 pp.; mounted frontispiece, folding map. Slight wear to front joint, some slight foxing, in all a sound copy. Bookplate of Edward Sands Litchfield and one other.
Issued after the author's untimely death using his diary notes, this is a rather rare privately published hunting account of an extensive expedition in British Somaliland. Francis arrived at Berbera in 1893, and hunted over a three hundred mile range to the South. It provides a fascinating account of the game he shot, the terrain he travelled, his encounters with natives etc.
