How it works


With an Introduction by H. M. Stanley. Rebound in simulated leather with title in gilt on spine, new end-papers. Frontis of author with tissue guard + xxxi + pp. 594 + pp.40 advertisements, illustrated with numerous b&w photographs. Complete with 5 maps (one fold-out map of Africa), two maps have single tears without loss, library stamp on half title page, otherwise an attractive copy. A fascinating account of Decle's trek from the Cape Colony through Bechuanaland, Rhodesia, Mozambique, Nyassaland, Uganda, Tanzania to Zanzibar. "My journey was performed at the most interesting period of the history pf Africa - just on the eve, or at the beginning of its transformation, while still in a primitive state, into European Colonies".
