THE BLACK PANTHER OF SIVANIPALLI. AND OTHER ADVENTURES OF THE INDIAN JUNGLE. Browning to edges and end-papers otherwise relatively clean and tidy internally. Slight lean to spine but a good-plus first edition in dust-wrapper, a little browned on the rear panel and just slightly frayed along the top and bottom edges but complete, presentable and not price-clipped. Black boards, spine titled in silver-gilt.Pictures show the actual copy being offered for sale. One of Kenneth Anderson's most popular books.
It has been reprinted several times however the first edition is becoming increasingly scarce. The thousands of readers who already know Kenneth Anderson's stories of adventure in pursuit of the man-eating beasts of the Indian jungle will know what to expect from his third and probably his best book. Few can equal him in jungle-lore, his knowledge of the ways of the wild creatures, of the hunters and the hunted, and none can tell a better story, full of excitement and colour, and crammed with unusual information. Each one of his tales, the truth of which is evident in the simple effective style, holds the reader enthralled from the first word to the last. In this book the concentration is upon panthers rather than tigers, a very different animal in his habits and quite different to deal with.But there are tigers as well, snakes and a great bull bison that survived a titanic battle with a tiger. These are no mere hunter's stories: thrills there are, but difficulties too, failures and disappointments. But the author, who has spent a lifetime in trying to understand the minds of jungle creatures, takes us into his confidence and explains the methods by which he has been able to rid the remoter inhabitants of India of some of their most terrible enemies. In doing so he builds up a vivid picture of the forest scene, which no reader is likely to forget.
