Kenya Diary 1902–1906
Meinertzhagen's diary of Colonial Rule in Kenya
First edition, first printing hardback, bound in the original brown cloth with gilt titling to spine. 22.5 × 14.5cm, 347pp
The Kenya diaries of Richard Meinertzhagen, the British soldier, intelligence officer and ornithologist. The book contains an awful amount of hunting and the slaughter of wildlife, and the appalling treatment of African tribes. Illustrated.
A very good copy. There is a slight lean to the spine but the pages are clean and the binding secure. There is a 1958 inscription to the ffep from Molly and Dick but it is not thought to be the author.
