From the library of R. J. Cunninghame or Cunningham (1871-1925), (here signed with a terminal "e') who led numerous safaris in British East Africa starting in 1905.
In 1909, he led Theodore and Kermit Roosevelt on a 12-month safari in East Africa, where he saved Theodore from a rampaging hippopotamus. Roosevelt’s adventures are recorded in his celebrated work, African Game Trails (1910).
