2 BAGLEY, Desmond Windfall. First Edition in dustjacket .Signed
Collins, London , 1982, ISBN:000222349X 
BAGLEY, Desmond. Windfall. London : Collins, 1982. First Edition. Pp (6),7-320. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. Desmond Bagley (1923-1983), was a British journalist and novelist principally known for a series of best-selling thrillers. "Jan Willem Hendrykxx's legacy amounted to a staggering £40 million; £34 million to go to an agricultural college in Kenya's Rift Valley, and the remaining £6 million to be divided equally between the mysterious benefactor's only discovered living descendants: Dirk Hendriks, a South African, and Henry Hendrix, a young drop-out living in California. "Max Stafford, head of Stafford Secrity Consultants in London, gets involved in the ensuing events for two reasons: one is that Dirk Hendriks happens to be the husband of a dear friend; the other is the sudden disappearance in London of Ben Hardin, an American detective, whose account of his assignment to track down Henry Hendrix and deliver him to his recent employer arrouses Stafford's suspicion. The trail leads to Kenya and the obscure agricultural college at Ol Njorowa which has benefitted from old Hendrykxx's millions. What is the source of those millions? [...] another of his inimitable thrillers, but he also produced a thoughtful novel about present-day Kenya;a novel of insight and humour that explores the intricate relationships of the Africans, Asians and Europeans who live and work there, and share a co mmon love of their country." - from the dj flap. A few smudges to front flyleaf, else very good in dustjacket (short tear to front fold). Signed, without inscription, by the author on the title-page. 40.00

Fate played a role: By chance he missed perdition with the infamous 'Shanghai Patrol', an expedition of the Mashonaland Border Police that was massacred by the Matabele tribe. Such adventures at war and with big game add up to a vivid example ofclassic Africana at its best." - from the dustjacket. Very good in unclipp ed dustjacket. 40.00

DUCKWORTH, Fred. A Far From Ordinary Life : A Diary of Adventures in an Africa now Past. Illustrated by Elise van der Heijden. Johannesburg: Rowland Ward Publications, (2004). First Printing. Pp. (3),iv-xii,1-244. Illustrated, largely in black and white (but occasionally in colour). Map endpapers. 4to, black leather with gilt lettering to spine. Foreword by Craig Boddington. "Fred Duckworth's unique story sweeps through thirty years, from his earliest youthful experiences of living and hunting in India during WWII to the last days of the Empire of the Lion of Judah in Ethiopia. We travel with him to the Terai jungles on the Indo-Nepalese border and the high Himalayasof the Northwest Frontier Province in the last years of the British Raj in pre-independence, pre-partition India. Returning to Kenya and Tanganyika, bent on a professional hunting career, Fred Duckworth's travels take us to Malawi. We join him, as the Provincial Game Warden of the southern region, on the hunts for the two notorious man-eating lions of Kasupe and Mandimba,when the hunters became the hunted. As the Wildlife & National Parks Advis er to the government of the last Emperor of Ethiopia, we are given an insight into the little known truths of Ethiopian wildlife conservation in that bewilderingly beautiful country and its often misunderstood, fractious, fiercely independent people. There is much more, of tiger and markhor, of elephant and killer crocodile, of good professional hunters and poor ones too. It is no exaggeration to say that Fred Duckworth has experienced a 'Far from Ordinary Life' in an Africa, which alas for many of us, is gone forever."- from the dustjacket.
