About this Item

First edition. One large folding map. 8vo, original royal blue cloth with gilt lettering on spine. vii, 271. A good copy, the spine showing some mild aging, edges of boards with evidence of old staining. Textblock in good order, large folding map present. Also includes "Journey of the Pombeiros: P. J. Battista and Amaro José, Across Africa From Angola to Tette on the Zambeze," translated by B. A. Beadle; and "Résumé of the Journey of M. M. Monteiro and Gamitto" by Dr. C. T. Beke. The RGS published these early accounts of Portuguese journeys into the African interior in the wake of increased interest in African exploration due to Livingstone's travels. According to Penzer, Burton had also written two appendices which were rejected by the RGS due to their controversial nature. In Penzer's time, as he mentions, original printings of the book were still available from the RGS, though of course now the book is rather uncommon. There was only one edition of this book.
