On this Earth. Photographs from East Africa.
Foreword by Alice Sebold. Introduction by Jane Goodall.
First edition, first printing, of Brandt’s resonant and reverent photographic series of animal portraits from East Africa. This copy bears a gift bookplate reading “From the bush of Kenya, we wish you all the best this holiday season! Thank you for the wonderful partnership you have formed with the Maasai. We appreciate your support and look forward to working with you for years to come! Best wishes,” and inscribed “Katy and Philip Leakey.” Philip Leakey and his wife Katy run The Leakey Collection, a craft company which helps the Maasai tribes of East Africa export their handicraft products. Philip, who was a former member of the Kenyan Parliament, is the son of famous paeleoanthropologist L. S. B. Leakey (1903-1972). A nice association closely connected to the land and culture of East Africa.
