LONGING FOR DARKNESS: KAMANTE'S TALES FROM "OUT OF AFRICA". With Original Photographs (January 1914 - July 1931) and quotations from Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen). Collected by Peter Beard.

First edition, first printing. Inscribed presentation copy. Publisher's original black boards in dustwrapper. Illustrated with 168 drawings and 100 photographs. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm with mild bumping and a few light marks. The contents, with a presentation inscription from Adrienne Kaeppler to Roslyn and Axel Poignant in blue ink on the front endpaper, are otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the lightly rubbed and creased, price-clipped dustwrapper that has a couple of small nicks and tiny closed tears to the edges.

Inscribed in blue ink on the front endpaper "For Ros and Axel / This book's true home / with much love / Adrienne / June '78". A wonderful presentation copy between two world renowned anthropologists Adrienne Kaeppler (1935-1922) and Roslyn Poignant (1927-2019).
