Out of Africa. Isak Dinesen.

Out of Africa.

New York: Random House, 1938. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with a small chip to the bottom edge of the front panel and a touch of wear to the spine. 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.
