The End of the Game, The Old Africa and the New. Photographs and Text by Peter H. Beard. Viking Press, New York, 1965. First edition. Quarto. Cloth in photo-illustrated dustjacket. 256 pp.

A widely acclaimed book, of great historic and social significance in understanding the transformations taking place on the African continent in the mid-20th century. Beard made four extended trips to Kenya and Tanganyika, and his photographs of the land, people, and wildlife present a moving, intimate, and informed document. Illustrated with full-page gravure photographs, smaller halftone images, and a few full-page color photographs; the photographs are accompanied by old engravings, native drawings, and woodcuts by Beard. Included in Andrew Roth's The Book of 101 Books: The Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century, pp. 170-171.

A fine copy in a near fine dustjacket (only very minor edge-chips to some extremities of the jacket); in clear glassine. Increasingly difficult to find in such well-preserved condition.
