Introduction by H.C. Maydon. Very scarce book on Zambia. We almost never list this book as it is nearly always on somebody's "want" list and therefore never makes it till catalog time. Author spent 18 years in Zambia around Lake Bangweulu. Hughes arrived at the Lake in 1901 where he stayed until 1919. He guided various contemporaries on hunting expeditions. The most comprehensive book on Lake Bangweulu and its surroundings that we know of. Curiously, this the first edition is not dated. A few months later, also in 1933, a second imprint was issued this one was dated and is clearly marked as such. Either imprint is exceedingly rare and neither comes up for sale more than once every blue moon.
