Out of Africa.
by Dinesen, Isak.
A Near Fine tight copy with some incidental markings to the preliminary pages in a Very Good unclipped dust jacket with two small chips to the spine and internal tape repair. Otherwise a very collectible copy of this classic memoir of author Dinesen's life in Africa. Dinesen gives a true account of her life on her plantation in Kenya. She tells with classic simplicity of the ways of the country and the natives: of the beauty of the Ngong Hills and coffee trees in blossom: of her guests, from the Prince of Wales to Knudsen, the old charcoal burner, who visited her: of primitive festivals: of big game that were her near neighbors--lions, rhinos, elephants, zebras, buffaloes--and of Lulu, the little gazelle who came to live with her, unbelievably ladylike and beautiful.
