1 Jim Corbett
Man-eaters of Kumaon
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0195622553 / 9780195622553; Twenty-sixth Impression; Paperback; New; New; 
'Part of the power of Corbett's writing lies in the ... maddening faithfulness with which he recalls and recreates the smallest details of his hunts ... The result is the kind of suspense that a professional writer ... could not easily create.'--Geoffrey C. Ward & Diane Raines Ward in Tiger-wallahs '[Corbett] has written with rich insight and deep intimacy about the wild animals of the forest ... When Man-Eaters of Kumaon was published, the book became a worldwide best-seller, was translated into a dozen languages, and even [made into] a Hollywood film.' --Ramachandra Guha in Lives in the Wilderness '...a certifiable classic ... the stories are gripping without being melodramatic ...[they] do not appear worn or dated today. Corbett was an exceptionally good writer, clear and lucid and [his] tales were ...extraordinary.' --The Hindu 'Jim Corbett as a person remains as elusive in [these]pages as the leopards and tigers he tracked down...He left a large place in his heart not only f or the denize Jim Corbett's books on man-eating tigers are not only established classics, but also almost in a separate literary category by themselves. Man-Eaters of Kumaon is the best known of Colonel Corbett's books, and contains ten fascinating stories of tracking and shooting man-eaters in the Indian Himalayas during the early years of the last century. The stories also contain incidental information on flora, fauna, and village life, making this book altogether delightful reading. Printed Pages: 228. 024468

3 Jim Corbett
My Kumaon: Uncollected Writings
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 0198082894 / 9780198082897; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Hunter, naturalist, and conservationist, Jim Corbett is famous for slaying man-eating tigers and leopards in the Kumaon region of northern India. Frequently appealed to by the government of the United Provinces during the 1920s and the 1930s for help, Corbett is known to have shot nineteen tigers and fourteen leopards - all man-eaters. Corbett was encouraged to write about his hunting experiences by Roy E. Hawkins, manager of the Indian Branch of the Oxford University Press and a personal friend. An integral part of OUP India's centenary celebrations, this volume includes Jim Corbett's unpublished writings on man-eaters, nature, and his beloved Kumaon, personal letters, articles written for newspapers and gazettes by his contemporaries, and letters exchanged between Corbett and his publisher showcasing the development of his bestselling books - all from the archives of the Oxford University Press. It highlights Corbett's engagement with the times in which he lived, his complete empathy with the people of Kumaon, his great understanding of tigers and leopards, and also the gradual development of his ideas about conservation and the need to preserve the tiger and its habitat. Chronicling the history of his bestselling books (Man-Eaters of Kumaon, The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag, and My India) and supported by rare photographs and evocative line drawings, this volume reflects the evolution of his writing as well as his long relationship with the Press.

6 Jim Corbett
The Second Jim Corbett Omnibus: Comprising My India, Jungle Lore, and Tree Tops
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 019562968X / 9780195629682; Hard Cover; New; New; 
'I am glad I did re-read the book, for few books stand up so well to the passage of time.' --David Davidar, The Hindu '... the book is a delight, with its descriptions in minute and often credible detail of the way of birds, reptiles and animals, and how to observe and interpret the sights, sounds and smells of the jungle ... We may be thankful to [Corbett] for sharing a little of it with us, and for allowing us to accompany him on his expeditions...' --Janet Rizvi, Indian Express Jim Corbett is world famous for his classic man-eater stories. However, the three volumes collected here show a very different side to this remarkable man. In My India, he describes the villages of the Kumaon Hills, and the customs and lifestyles of the people he encountered. Jungle Lore is the closest Corbett ever came to writing an autobiography, combining recollections of his earliest days with frank views on the need for conservation which were well ahead of their time. Finally, in Tree Tops, the only book Corbett set outside his beloved India, he captures the savage beauty of Kenya's wildlife as well as telling the story of the royal visit of 1952, during which Princess Elizabeth learned she was Queen. Printed Pages: 224 with line drawings and a map. 027904

7 Jim Corbett
The Second Oxford India Illustrated Corbett
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195684281 / 9780195684285; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Second Oxford India Illustrated Corbett is another collection of Corbett’s best-loved writings complemented by gripping illustrations. Whether lovingly sketching life in a Himalayan village as in ‘The Queen of the Village’ and ‘Kunwar Singh’, or describing the dense Indian jungles and teeming wildlife of his days in Jungle Lore, or telling the story, tinged with regret, of the hunting of the beautiful Pipal Pani Tiger, the stories reflect Corbett’s involvement with India, her people and her flora and fauna. With ‘The Talla Des Man-eater’ and ‘The Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag’ we enter vintage Corbett territory—tightly paced and nail-biting accounts of hunting man-eaters in the hills of Kumaon and Garhwal. The entire collection, with its rich visuals and riveting tales, will appeal to young readers, and Corbett admirers alike. However, some stories have been chosen particularly for our younger readers. ‘Robin’ is a poignant story of Corbett’s favourite hunting dog; ‘Sultana’ is an appealing tale of an Indian Robin Hood; and ‘The Muktesar Man-eater’ is a touching account of Corbett’s satisfaction at ‘having made a small portion of the earth safe for a brave little girl to walk on’. 033179

'Beyond the tales of Corbett's quests lies an extraordinary body of accurately observed details about life in the Indian jungles ... and the behaviour of tigers...Most of his independent findings have been subsequently been borne out by scientists.'--Geoffrey C Ward & Diane Raines Ward in Tiger-wallahs '...Corbett's sharp eye for detail and his straight-forward style make the book a compulsive read.' --Sunday Mail 'Colonel Jim Corbett was a rarity -- a man of immense courage and knowledge of the wildlife he hunted, and later attempted to conserve ... He had nothing but admiration and respect for tigers, the most magnificent creature to be found in the ...jungles.' --The Hindu 'Here is ... the quintessential Corbett ... The book is a delight ... Corbett is acutely aware of the damage ... being wrought to the forests of human interference ... We are thankful to him for allowing us to accompany him ... into a realm that only a generation or two age covered much of Indi a ...' This is the last of Jim Corbett's books on his unique and thrilling hunting experiences in the Indian Himalayas. Concluding the narrative begun in the famous Man-Eaters of Kumaon, Corbett writes with an acute awareness of all jungle sights and sounds, his words charged with a great love for human beings that lay within his hunting terrain. These qualities are what make these stories vintage Corbett. Printed Pages: 190. 023659
