A Narrative of Travel and Sport in Burmah, Siam, and the Malay Peninsula.
First edition. Extremely uncommon. “An interesting work combining travel, observation and big game hunting. Near the Sittang River in Burma, the author hunted numerous tigers, including an episode of tiger shooting related by his companion Captain Lacy. Near the River Thungyen, an elephant was bagged, with additional notes on hunting leopard, deer, and other game in the area. Buffalo, rhino, and more tiger were collected on the River Menaum. While in Malaya he hunted elephant, deer, and antelope” (Czech). John Bradley is thought to have been a pseudonym, the book being variously attributed to James Anthony Lawson, or to Captain John A. Lawson, who was the author of Wanderings in the Interior of New Guinea, published the previous year.
Octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to the spine, decorative panel in black to both boards, pale cream endpapers. A little rubbed, endpapers slightly discoloured, text mildly toned, a very good copy.
