The Book of The Tiger - with a chapter on The Lion in India - Brigadier-General R. G. Burton 1933 - Hutchinson & Co. Publishers Ltd., London - First Edition ‘Combining his own hunting adventures with a study of the tiger in general, Burton focuses on man-eaters, hunting from an elephant, hunting on foot, and other equally descriptive chapters.

He also includes notes from books and journal articles penned by other sportsmen.

A concluding chapter reveals the experiences other travelers and hunters had with lions in the Kathiawar region’, which is home to the last remaining Asiatic lions left in the wild.

This volume is concerned more with natural history than with sport; the few chapters devoted to the chase are intended to describe and illustrate various methods of hunting rather than to give lengthy descriptions of bags and blood. - from the introduction.
