The spine rubbed and a label removed with some losses to spine and cover leather, tears to a few guard sheets but the photographs fine and loosely mounted.
An intense album opening with a series of photographs of a crocodile hunt followed by images of large ostrich eggs; a snake skinning scene marked as "Singapore"; elephants and tiger hunts; a picture postcard of young women marked "Batang Padang, Perak"; at the end a newspaper clipping laid-in identifies the hunter.
