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. Includes some color and numerous black and white photographs and illustrations. A clean and tight close to near fine copy with some bumping to the top of the spine and some other minor wear in a near fine dust jacket with the same bumping to the top of the spine. Still a nice copy of the third book from Beard, whose first book, "The End of Game" is widely considered to be a masterpiece.
