Tree Tops by Jim Corbett

Tree Tops by Jim Corbett lands on the shelves of my shop, where it will be found in my Royalty section.

London, New York & Toronto: Geoffrey Cumberlege Oxford University Press, 1955, Hardback in dust wrapper.

Illustrated by way of: Vignette to the title page; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: Jim Corbett spent the closing years of his life in Kenya, and in Tree Tops he describes the scenes witnessed by Her Majesty the Queen (on her last day as Princess Elizabeth) and her husband during their visit to the famous hunting lodge. It is a fascinating story which tells in the true Corbett manner of the spontaneous exhibition of wild life in its natural setting provided for the Royal Party by the elephants, baboons and other forest creatures.
