Happy Holidays one and all.
I would like to offer a short time holiday special on the book I recently published – ‘My Life’ by General Paul von Lettow Vorbeck. It is the first English edition of the autobiography of this very interesting man. His ‘My Reminiscences of East Africa’ is a relatively common book, but the only one of his books until now to be found in translation. I never knew why. But when the chance to publish ‘My Life’ presented itself; I jumped at it . The book is sewn hardcover cloth with a dust jacket. In appearance it is very like the scarce German original. The published price is $49.95. For this special until the 18th of Dec.(should allow for Christmas delivery), I am offering a price of $40.
I am happy to sign copies on request.
I had hoped to have a regular book list out some time ago, but have not found the time. There are a few authors also recently published that I would like to mention. First is Dr. Tony Sinclair who has worked in the Serengeti since my days in E. A.. He has published a book on the history of the Serengeti. I should be able to have signed copies when he returns from Tanz. in January. There are also other new books coming out on WW I in E. A. I need to get detail on pricing (one must come from Kenya & the shipping is a bit of a problem), etc.
New books on WW I in E. A. brings up something else new. There is now a Great War in East Africa Association – http://gweaa.com . It has been around only since February 2011, but looks to be a winner. If you order ‘My Life’ through this offer or via GWEAA, I will give a percentage to the association.
I hope to hear from a good number of you, but if not be sure to have a good holiday season.
