Hemingway Writes on Africa - Look Magazine 1954

Bill Jones who owns, and generously lent me Hemingway's Westley Richards 577 for display at Safari Club this year, kindly gave me a copy of the Look magazine article written by Ernest Hemingway in 1954 and titled Safari. I had never seen this article which describes his 5 month Safari in Kenya accompanied by PH Philip Percival and Look photographer Earl Theisen. We see the 577 in the Rhino hunt spread.  I have scanned the pages in original size so if you click on the individual image you will be able to see the enlarged page and hopefully be able to read it. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
