We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for WHAT LED TO THE DISCOVERY OF THE SOURCE OF THE NILE by Speke John Hanning.

Description:

First edition. With an engraved frontispiece, folding map, and the double-page map of the Somali Coast. 8vo, publisher s original rust-coloured cloth, the spine lettered in gilt, the covers ruled and decorated in blind. x, 372 pp., 32-page publisher's catalogue. A very good and handsome copy, with a bit of tenderness to the outer hinge of the upper cover, light shelf wear, a sound and clean copy, well preserved for this difficult book . THE RAREST AND DEAREST OF THE TWO BOOKS PENNED BY JOHN SPEKE AFTER HIS TRAVELS INTO THE LAKE REGIONS OF AFRICA AND THIS, THE NARRATION OF THE HIGHLY IMPORTANT JOURNEY WITH RICHARD FRANCIS BURTON. This work is composed of two parts, the "Journal of Adventures in Somali Land," and the "Journal of a Cruise on the Tanganyika Lake." Speke had apparently, at the end of the Punjab campaign in 1849, developed the idea to explore Central Africa with a view to collecting hitherto unknown species of fauna. At the same time the Bombay government was organizing an expedition to Somaliland under Lieutenant Richard Burton. Speke had originally planned to travel into Africa alone--a very unwise proposal--and James Outram, the political resident at Aden, at first forbid him. Outram then suggested that Speke join Burton's expedition, which he did. It was during this expedition that Speke claimed to have discovered the true source of the Nile, but Burton and his associate, James Macqueen, immediately disputed his claims. Speke was granted command of a second expedition in 1860 to explore the Victoria Nyanza and verify his earlier findings. In the years 1863 and 1864 Speke published, respectively, JOURNAL OF THE DISCOVERY OF THE SOURCE OF THE NILE and this book, WHAT LED TO THE DISCOVERY OF THE SOURCE OF THE NILE. Despite the confusing titles, the "Journal" actually covers his second expedition, with James Grant, while "What Led To" narrates his first journey in the company of Burton. Bookseller Inventory #
