About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Story of the Rear Column of the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition. Edited by Mrs. J. S. Jameson. by Jameson, James S..

Description:

Pp. xxxii, 455, (1); frontispiece is a mounted oval photographic portrait of James S. Jameson, 96 fine black-and-white halftone drawings - 17 are full-page plates, 2 quadruple-page folding color contiguous maps of 'River Congo from Stanley Falls to Kassongo to illustrate the journey of James S. Jameson' at the end of the text. Publisher's original green cloth, ruled in blind, and lettered in gilt on the spine with gilt three-mast sailing ship on the front cover, thick 8vo (218 x 140 mm). Jameson was an officer in Henry M. Stanley's expedition to find and rescue the famous Emin Pasha (real name Edouard Schnitzer) a German who lived in equatorial Africa. The expedition resulted in additional fame and fortune for Stanley with the publication of his book "In Darkest Africa." Part way into the trip Stanley left behind several officers and a few hundred men to form the "Rear Column," who were to guard supplies and wait for Stanley's return from the interior. Stanley left them in May 1887, and was expected back in October. Jameson wrote to his wife, "The bright side of the whole thing is the splendid opportunity it gives me of collecting in a country never collected in before, and altogether, as far as I can make out, we shall have a rather exciting time of it." Jameson, who had previous ornithological collecting experience in India and Southeast Africa, continued to collect natural history specimens. Bowdler Sharpe's appendix in this volume describes 125 bird species mentioned by Jameson in his journal, and his collection of these specimens was published by G.E. Shelley in the Ibis. There is another appendix on Jameson's entomological collection that was described by F. D. Godman and O. Salvin. Unfortunately, Jameson did not live to enjoy the fruits of his collecting; he died of fever on the Congo River on August 17, 1888, the same day that Stanley was first spotted on his return, 700 miles upriver and nine months late. No ownership marks. Some light spotting to the page edges only, the front and rear endpapers show some browning; a very bright and clean copy in near fine condition. Bookseller Inventory #
