New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1975. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. A fascinating book which examines Isak Dinesen's and her companion Kamante's lives in Africa. A fine copy in a very good plus dust jacket with two tears and some creasing to the base of the front panel. Signed by Beard on the front endpapers with the further embellishment of him tracing his hand as well as adding "Salaama sana" and his address in "Nairobbery." A very nice copy and uncommon signed.
