Bibliographic Details

Title: Travels Through Central Africa to Timbuctoo:...

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback


Paperback. 530 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.2in.French explorer Rn Cailli (1799-1838) was the first European to document a successful expedition to Timbuktu, Africas elusive city of gold. Europeans were not welcome there, and until Caillis expedition no explorer had returned alive. Encouraged by the 10, 000 francs offered by the Socit de Gographie to the first non-Muslim to bring back information on the city, he set out from Senegal in 1824 and eventually reached Timbuktu in 1828. His travels are recounted here in this two-volume work, first published in English in 1830. Volume 2 covers the final part of his journey to Timbuktu, where he stayed for two weeks. Including his impressions of the peoples, tribal conflict, slavery, customs and commerce, the volume concludes with an account of his journey home across the Sahara Desert, and his survival in spite of suffering from fever and fatigue. Vividly written, Caillis work remains a landmark in the history of African exploration and adventure. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
