Sport in Abyssinia, on the Mareb and Tackazzee

Nature volume 13, page 384 | Download Citation



THE Earl of Mayo seems to have published this book to show intending sportsmen in Abyssinia how not to do it. His expedition, organised solely for sport, was rather an unfortunate one. Very little sport was obtained by the author, and ere he had well set to work, he was taken so ill that he had suddenly to return to Massowah to catch a homeward-bound steamer. The work contains some shrewd observations on Abyssinian people and affairs, and will no doubt be appreciated by sportsmen.
