With Flashlight and Rifle, Vol. 1

Excerpt from With Flashlight and Rifle, Vol. 1: A Record of Hunting Adventures and of Studies in Wild Life in Equatorial East Africa The illustrations in this book, with a very few exceptions, which are indicated, have been reproduced from the original photographs taken by myself. Dr. Ludwig Meek, in the course of his appreciative introduction to the German edition, refers to these photographs as Natururkunden - certificated records, as it were, of the scenes from wild life therein depicted. And the fact that they are absolutely free from "retouching" of any kind will be held to justify him in the use of that term. Absolutely the only photograph that has been worked up in any way is the one (on p. 393) of two lions attacking an ox. The negative of this was damaged while I was developing it. I have described elsewhere the feeling of satisfaction with which, six months afterwards, I received a telegram from the Fatherland to announce that it was gerettet - restored! My pictures may be classified as (1) ordinary photographs taken by daylight at varying ranges; (2) those taken with a telephoto-lens; (3) those taken at night time by flashlight.
