xi 122 pages, full page and text illus by G.H.G.Moorhouse, front and rear end papers showing drawing of a magazine rifle, a double barrel rifle and a 12 bore shotgun with components identified, pictorial printed card covers with title and tigers head to upper covers. A vg copy of a Corbett rarity. One copy located in the USA on World Cat, a note on contents begins "These stories are taken from Jim Corbetts well known book Man Eaters Of Kumaon. they have been abridged and slightly simplified for children" Reading the preface which in most cases follow that of the original there are some differences, the stories covered are "The Champawat man Eater, the Chowgarth Tiger And The Mohan Man Eaters". At the end of the book are 7 pages of questions and authors notes. These do not appear in the original book, whether the book was abridged by Corbett I cannot find other than "Authors notes" I also cannot find the illustration being used in other Corbett titles. I handled this copy a few years ago, and have recently re-purchased it from the collection of Arnold "Jake" Johnson who I originally sold it to. Johnson held one of the most comprehensive collections on Indian big game.
