About this Item

2 volumes. First edition. With 160 illustrations from photographs and a large color folding map at rear. Thick 8vo, publisherís original navy blue cloth gilt lettered and ruled on the spines and covers. xv, 396, [4 ads]; xii, 511, [1 ad] pp. A very pleasing, well preserved and handsome set, the cloth clean and very solid, quite fresh but for the lightest evidence of shelving, internally solid and clean, the plates and folding map in excellent order. SCARCE. This is the account of the first journey taken across Africa at its widest point with "pleasure as its sole object," covering over 8,500 miles in a space of 364 days. Like much of Savage-Landorís work, these two volumes have since become fixtures in any collection of Africana. They are replete with photographs and descriptions of the circumstances of Africa at the turn of the century. Savage-Landor is known not only for his writings of his African travels, but also his accounts of Tibet, China, South America, Europe, and numerous points in between. A desirable set of this Africana classic. Bookseller Inventory # 25385
