Quicama, Angola: [1929]. Unbound. The 79 b/w silver gelatin snapshots (61 different, 18 duplicates) vary in size; most are approximately 5.25” x 3.25” Twelve have typed or manuscript captions on their reverse. All slightly convex. The photos show the two white hunters (Roschen and Stringwald)—many with them posing with their trophies (leopard, hippopotamus, antelope, impala, water buffalo, bushbuck, n’golungo, etc.), the Safari trucks (stuck in the mud, fording a river, at the campsite, etc.), a Baobab tree, and African men, women, and children carrying supplies, butchering game, etc. Very good. Item #009069

These images came from a group of photographs that belonged to Dr. Ernest C. Roschen, an oil company geologist and long-time collaborator of Dr. Joseph Singewald, whose career and association with Roschen—including their hunting trips—is described with considerable detail in the May, 1964 issue of The Bulletin of American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
