Leyland, complts." In September 1853 the author sailed from Liverpool to New York. In December he arrived in Honduras after a 14 day journey, making "short excursions into the interior, collecting birds, animals, &c." He shot and preserved thousands of specimens, sending the skins to New York and England. He "was frequently attacked with ague and fever, which most Europeans are subject to in this country." This forced him to skin birds while in bed with fever. From Omoa he sailed to the mouth of the Aloor; he visited San Pedro, Belize, and Peten. He sailed from Belize in September 1856. Several of the birds he catalogued were unknown. "An account of three journeys in South Africa in the middle of the nineteenth century (1848-1852). The author arrived in Algoa Bay in September 1848.engaged in 'shooting, collecting, and preserving birds.'.The next trip was started from Graaf-Reinert, on May 18, 1850, and the author evidently endeavoured to combine trading with shooting, but was not very successful in the former direction.The volume possesses many notes respecting the game and wil animals and birds of South Africa with references to Dr. Livingstone and other travellers and missionaries encountered in the journeys"--Mendelssohn, p.897.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Adventures in the Far Interior of South Africa: Including a Journey to Lake Ngami and Rambles in Honduras The narrative of my wanderings in Cen tral America is necessarily brief; in order that the work should not extend beyond a single volume of moderate size. Since my return from Honduras, I have suffered from ague and fever at intervals, necessitating my absence from business on several occasions for the benefit of my health. This has prevented me from preparing my journal for publicity at an earlier period. In the following pages, I do not for a moment pretend to classical or literary style. The facts and incidents related are truthful narratives, noted down at the time of their occurrence, in simple language.
