Lot #6/14 1,000 miles in a machilla: travel and sport in Nyasaland, Angoniland, and Rhodesia, with some account of the resources of these countries by Mrs. Arthur Colville …. and chapters on sport by Colonel Colville. More about travel, missions & the people than hunting. But very exciting to think that this woman spent much of her time travelling through wildest Africa (the two Rhodesias, Nyasaland & Mozambique) being carried by porters in a “hammock.” Probably the first white woman to see much of this territory. A nice item. London, Walter Scott Publishing Co., Ltd., 1911. First edition. 8vo. Cloth. Pp. 311, photo-plates, folding colour map. Covers a bit rubbed, quite heavy foxing as usual. Good+ Reserve price: R1500.00 bids welcome
