OK, Paul du Chaillu, French-American born in 183something and the first white guy to actually see Gorillas alive. Prolific author, explored the Gabon and hunted all over the place in the mid 1800's. Died in 1903 a famous man. What I find fascinating about him is how people like this would dare to go, alone, into the central african jungles, not speaking the language, no aspirin, no phone, no mail, unprepared, no survival training, no parachute cord, no vaccines,incomunicado and manage to come back alive.These are VERY interesting books. The first one, Paul du Chaillu, Gorilla Hunter by Vaucaire is a detailed biography. First edition, the book is tight and has two 1/2 inch rips in the cloth cover on the hinge. The second is 'In African Forest and Jungle' By Du Chaillu, ex library book, complete, tight but well used. Scribner's Sons, 1922 The third one is 'The Land of The Long Night' by Du Chaillu. C. Scribner's Sons, 1930. It's about exploration and some hunting in the polar circle in Lapland. See Pics. This auction starts at $1 with no reserve to see what happens!
