About this Item

Four illustrations, including a frontispiece engraving of the author. Dust wrapper with dampstain running down middle of spine, but not affecting the book. Dust wrapper has some small chips and a closed tear. From the promotional material by the publisher: "Sir Harry Johnston's rich life as explorer began while he was still in his teen, shen, as an artist, he stayed in Tunis and made adventurous excursions therefrom. All Africa, since that time, has been his province, as this fascinating book clearly shows. He has made intelligible to strangers the many dialects of the Bantu languages; his specimens of previously unknown birds and animals are in our national collections; year after year he has contributed brillant studies of plumage and jungle splendours to the Royal Academy. Artist, explorer, linguist and philologist; ardent politician and administrator; and one who has lived fully and observantly amoung the most notable men and women of the last fifty years, Sir Harry Johnston covers the who of his life in one absorbing narrative. The book is crowded with memories of a long life of extraordinary varied interests, and its portraits and pictures are those of wide and vivid experience." Publisher's black cloth, gilt lettering. 536 pages, including index. Bookseller Inventory # 7584
