London, L. Upcott Gill, [circa 1893] (second edition).

Octavo, viii, 354, [2] (advertisements), [16] (publisher's catalogue, '163 C 5/93') pages with 58 numbered in-text illustrations and 3 full-page plates plus a frontispiece plate and a folding plan.

Glt- and colour-pictorial cloth slightly scuffed and bumped, with minimal wear to the ends of the spine; occasional light foxing; leading edge of the last two leaves of the publisher's catalogue damaged (uncut and unopened during production, and subsequently roughly opened); a very good copy.

'I have been asked many times what to do, if camping out abroad, supposing you shot a tiger or a bear, and wished to preserve the skin as a "flat". Simply lay it on the ground and slit the skin underneath, in a straight line through the under lip to the tip of the tail' - it's all here.
