Signed, inscribed and annotated 'I had time after time watched the progression across the plain of the giraffe, in their queer, inimitable, vegetative gracefulness, as if it were not a herd of animals but a family of rare, long-stemmed, speckled gigantic flowers slowly advancing - It was, in gigantic size, the border of a very old, infinitely precious Persian carpet, on the dyes of green, yellow and black-brown. Karen Blixen (from "Out of Africa")' in ink (recto); credited and titled on affixed gallery label (frame backing board), printed later
