About this Item

2 volumes. First edition. Illustrated with12 maps and 10 full-page woodcuts. Large folding map at the end of Volume II. 8vo, original dark green cloth, gilt-lettered and pictorially decorated with vignettes on the spines, the upper covers centrally decorated with black letters and vignette in black and gilt, the borders with multiple rules in black. Lower cover border decorated in blind. vii, 483; viii, 529, 2 ads. pp. A handsome set of this scarce double-decker in the original cloth. Just a bit of aging and mellowing but uncommonly well preserved just the same. SCARCE FIRST EDITION. Based on three years' travel in Sierra Leone, Senegambia, Liberia, the Gold Coast , the Slave Coast and "the Negro Republic.""It is not only a narrative of travel I offer to the public", says the author, " but a sketch book of African life; and though the texture of the work is light, the labour bestowed upon it has been immense". Copies of the first edition are especially elusive and very much so in this condition. Bookseller Inventory # 26688
