9781330128138: Notes of Travel in South-Western Africa (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Notes of Travel in South-Western Africa

In the preface to Andersson's recent work, The Lion and the Elephant, edited by myself, it was stated that, if well received by the public, I should probably give out other of his Memoranda in my possession, relating to his more recent Travels; and as the above-named work has proved a success, I now proceed to fulfil my promise.

Owing, however, to severe illnesses, brought on by the hardships Andersson underwent during his early travels; to wounds inflicted by wild beasts, and to his broken fortunes, which compelled him to devote the greater part of his time to mercantile, instead of, as heretofore, to scientific pursuits, he was in a great degree prevented from following up his explorations in unknown lands, and hunting the Elephant, and other denizens of the forest, as in by-gone days.
