Only edition. A signed presentation copy from the author, John Bell-Irving, to Douglas Jones.

Bell-Irving was a Scottish businessman who spent much of his professional life in Hong Kong. While there, he was a partner of the Jardine Matheson & Co., one of the leading trading firms in the Far East, and director of the Hongkong Electric Company. Jones was Secretary of the Union Insurance Society of Canton, of Shanghai. "The greatest pleasure in up-country shooting trips," Bell-Irving claims, "is the idea of perfect freedom, far removed from business cares, and beyond the reach of letters and telegrams." Each entry is relatively brief, but through these the author offers a detailed account of the conditions and the game bagged.
