11 Baze, William; Translated By H.M. Burton Just Elephants (Elephant Big Game Hunting) Fine 1st ED/HB/DJ
London Elek Books 1955 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Book 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Photographs; Drawings By Paul Wyeth 
Stunning copy in burgundy cloth boards, corners straight and sharp, no markings, tears or soil. NOT ex-lib. 244 pp. DJ in mylar displays beautifully. Author has spent 40 yrs in the Indochinese jungle. As a young man he wandered about with this lonely tent and primitive equipment befriending the villagers in the scattered settlements of the forest clearings, hunting, observing and enjoying the close relationship with all the wildlife around him. He later joined H.M. the Emperor Bao Dai as chief elephant tamer and keeper, but also became a trusted friend, taking part in the Emperor's hunting expeditions, and traveling with him over the vast jungle territories of his domain. Here are the excitements of the chase, of close combat with tigers, leopards, and crocodiles. Here is a wealth of elephant lore, written with a love, understanding and wonderful sense of humor that makes this a unique record. Elephants, their exciting capture and training, their affectionate family life, their affability, their intelligence, and yes, even their sense of fun, are the main theme of this book, which leaves the reader with a nostalgic love for these animals and the way of life William Baze was so lucky and so happy to lead.
