Alice in Jungleland

Alice in Jungleland by Mary Hastings Bradley.

Illustrations by Alice Hastings Bradley.

Published by D. Appleton & Company, 1928. Hardback, no dustjacket.

Not strictly an Alice book: in the 1920s Mary, her husband Herbert and their daughter Alice traveled to the ‘Belgian Congo’ looking for specimens of the mountain gorilla for display in museums. These expeditions were described in three books, “On the Gorilla Trail”, “Alice in Jungleland” and “Alice in Elephantland”.

Lots of shooting things. Different world: these days it’s cameras, not guns.

Bought in Marchpane on Cecil Court.
