Calling all tourists, sportsmen, invalids and settlers

I find these books and the paper cut out to be quite beautiful -   something you cant get from your Kindle.  I also find one of the descriptions to be pretty odd although I'm sure it didn't seem so at the time.  The 1915 Guide to South and East Africa (shown below) says it is "for the use of tourists, sportsmen, invalids and settlers."  These are all from a Smithsonian site called The Art of African Exploration.
