Description:

2 volumes. Scarce first edition. With roughly 150 illustrations, color plates, and 4 folding maps in pocket at rear of Volume I. 8vo, original patterned brick-red cloth, adorned with lettering in gilt and black on the spines and upper covers, elaborately decorated with all-over pictorial designs stamped in gilt, black and silver on the upper covers. xxi, 376; xv, 347 pp. An uncommonly nice and well preserved set, the attractive decorated cloth bright and unfaded with only very minor shelf rubbing or light edge wear, very small split to cloth at the upper shoulder of Volume I, internally quite near fine, the occasional toning or spotting much less than is typical. SCARCE FIRST EDITION WELL PRESERVED IN ORIGINAL DECORATED CLOTH. "Send me a young man, preferably an officer in the army, well acquainted with the art of drawing maps", with this letter from Gessi Pasha began Captain Casati s ten year adventure in Africa. During his years there he experienced imprisonment, a sentence to death and daring escape. He also was well known among such African luminaries of the day as Emin Pasha and Henry Stanley. This account, taken from his manuscripts and letters, was somewhat late in publication because his early paper had been stolen by King Chua and had to be rewritten from memory and because Casati remained in Africa for some time to nurse the ailing Pasha. A memorable and historically valuable addition to the African genre. Bookseller Inventory #
