Harry Manners was a long-time Mozambique resident. He hunted buffaloes for meat and elephants for ivory. A very good book on both of these animals and this book is rightly considered a modern elephant hunting classic. This is the true first edition published in Johannesburg. It is actually quite rare in the hard cover 1980 edition because the publisher issued a soft cover at the same time and apparently most copies printed were soft cover. The book was later printed again in London and elsewhere.
