African majesty: A Record of Refuge at the Court of the King of Bangangte in the French Cameroons. Illustrated from Photographs by the Author

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1939. Hardcover. xx+348p., author's note, introduction, index, illustrated with doubled endpaper maps and b&w photos. Nigeria, the British Camaroons, France, and Spanish Guinea. Hardbound in dark blue boards gilt, and enclosed in the wood-engraved dust jacket. Awfully nice copy, massive undecorated blue cloth boards spine-titled gilt, dust jacket price-clipped and toned, chipped in places with a bit of dust-soil, an impressive copy. Egerton liked his stay, enormously. Dunno if he was entitled to share the eighty wives.

The quietly splendid binding reminds one of Scribner's more ambitious period, before (as with the awful Scribner formula for the Hemingway trade), cheapening most casebindings.
