East African Airways: Guide to the East African Territories of Kenya, Tanganyika, Uganda & Zanzibar. [aka E.A.A. Guide to East Africa].

Salisbury, Nairobi, Cape Town: A.J. Levin. n.d. [1959]. First edition. 357pp, illustrated with photographs, some in colour, and advertisements. 'This is the first attempt ever made to publish a comprehensive Guide dealing solely with the three mainland British East Aftican Territories, and the island of Zanzibar'. An impressive repository of administrative and tourism information, as well as a fair amount of colonial, and some pre-colonial, history. Endpapers tanned, light spotting to closed edges of text block, contents clean. In the original fawn cloth titled in black, clean and firm, slightly mottled, foot of spine knocked. In the protected illustrated dust jacket. This has some scuffing and fraying to the edges and joints, and a small chip at the head of the spine. Two white areas on the front cover, which once bore the title information in red, have completely faded: as, marginally less so, has red text to the advert on the back of the jacket. While the Levins' guide to Rhodesia and Nyasaland is readily found, this title is very uncommon. A good copy. VG in G dust-jacket.
