US$300 - US$500
Price realised:
US$375
Beschreibung:

Profusely illustrated from photographs by the author and other sources. 28x20.5 cm (11x8"), cloth, pictorial jacket. First Edition. "Peter Beard began working on this book in 1955, while he was still an art history major at Yale, but he had already fallen under the spell of Isak Dinesen's Out of Africa. The first edition of The End of the Game was published in 1965, after Beard had been working in the Tsavo game preserve in Kenya for two years...Long taken as a seminal book on wildlife conservation, it is actually an epic visual poem on the subject of loss, especially the ultimate loss of life." - Roth pp. 170-71.
