A Book Of Man-Eaters by Brigadier-General R G Burton (1931). "Scattered in numerous volumes, as well as in the pages of memory from an old hunter's experience, many man-eaters are to be met with. But it is not possible for one man to come into contact with more than a few man-killing carnivorous monsters, for such are rare and abnormal. In this volume, therefore, I not only sink the string of thought into the well of memory, but lay under contribution the tales and records of sportsmen and others for stories that are here related."
