This is a fascinating expedition report of Stewart's journey across the district lying between the two great lakes Nyassa and Tanganyika, with the purpose of surveying the route for the possibility of constructing a road between the two lakes. His plan was to start from the sub-station at Kaningina, march to Karonga's village on the Kambwe lagoon, and to cross to Pambete on Lake Tanganyika. At Pambete, Stewart met Mr. Thomson, of the Royal Geographical Society's expedition, who had arrived there the day before; there he spent 3 days with Mr. Thomson comparing notes. Also included are some information on the geographical features, weather, and tribal languages. Accompanied by a spectacular fold out colour map, illustrating James Stewart's Livingstonia expedition, expanding on and correcting his previous map, showing the northern portion of the lake. The map shows the Livingstone range, several rivers, a northern plateau, mountains, and a 'great elephant marsh'. Seller Inventory # 024492
