Lot 26
[AFRICA-HUNTING] WEBER, FRANK [William Hermann Frank]. A Novice on the Nile.
London: Arthur H. Stockwell, n.d. [1929, from WorldCat]. First edition. Publisher's green cloth in dust jacket. 7 1/8 x 4 3/4 inches (18 x 12 cm); 54 pp.; map frontispiece, 4 plates. Minor wear and small losses to the edges of the jacket.
Czech say "A quite scarce little work," and the records bear this out; we note only one copy at auction, and only five copies in institutions. "Weber trekked along the White Nile in the Sudan, collecting kob and waterbuck on the Bahr-al-Ghazal. Entering the Sudd, he and his partner bagged gazelle, oribi, tiang, lion, and buffalo before downing a pair of elephants." Czech Africa p. 296.
