How it works


Account of the interior of Angola and the Congo by an obscure, yet very observant explorer of Portuguese origins. He studied geology in Britain and his main aim in West Africa was the search for minerals. However he wrote down important data on the region, its fauna and flora as well as on the culture of the inhabitants. He died shortly after the completion of the work. 303 + 340 pp, this edition the scarce one with colour plates and map. Recovered in green buckram with original gilt decoration and spine panel laid down on covers.
