Dinesen, Isak (Baroness Karen Blixen of Rungstedlund), 1885-1962.  
Out of Africa.

Publisher: Random House, NY [c1938]. 'First Edition'.
ix, 389 p., 21 cm. Of Dinesen's lovely, pastoral account of the Ngong Hills, people, and wildlife, Dorothy Canfield wrote, "It is life-- as lived on the African coffee-farm by the author, as lived by the wild animals on the highlands around her, by the black and white human beings-- wild and tamed-- who worked for her, or dined with her. It is night, it is day, it is sunshine and storm and wind and grasshopper plagues; it is Africa seen from the house, from the plantations, from the four hills, from the air. It is horses and oxen; strange lore of primitive black tribes, sensitively understood by this absolutely unprimitive white woman; and acute insight into the equally strange lore of white civilization." brown cloth boards & black cloth spine both stamped in gold, top edge green; top edge slightly spotted; wormhole in upper outer margin; color pictorial dj intact but spine faded, chips along edges & folds, closed tear at bottom of spine, half-inch irregular tear at top of spine, small triangular tear from top of rear edge; bookplate; book VG+/dj good.
