About this Item

Richard (1804?34) and John (1807?39) Lander were commissioned by the British Colonial Office to complete what had been left undone by the Clapperton expedition to the Niger River. Richard had been one of the survivors of the Clapperton debacle and was a veteran explorer and traveller. The Landers were very successful: They mapped the Niger from its source to where it emptied into the Bight of Benin. First American edition, issued the same year as the London edition. The plates and maps are a mix of wood and steel engravings, stipple engravings, etc., signed variously by American engravers J. Harris, E. Prudhomme, and D. R. Harrison.
