A very good copy, with dust jacket, of the first edition of this book which chronicles, in photographs and text, the end of the colonial era in Kenya.  Peter H. Beard (1938-2020), American artist, photographer, diarist, and writer, first went to Africa at the age of 17.  The photographs he took then and on three subsequent journeys are the visual foundation of this volume. 

From the library of Henry Bowdle Stewart, Mainline Philadelphia businessman.

Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
