About this Item: Edinburgh William Blackwood 1861, 1861. First edition, and WITH THE SCARCE SUBSCRIPTION PAMPHLET appealing for funds for Petherick’s proposed expedition to explore the Nile sources and to aid the Speke and Grant Expedition already in progress, and to further explore the Nile beyond Gondokoro. With a large folding map of the author’s travels. 8vo, original publisher’s textured burgundy cloth, blindstamped decorative borders to both covers, the spine lettered in gilt. [4 page subscription pamphlet], xii, 482, 16 ads. A very desirable copy of this rare first edition, internally very clean, the binding bright and handsome with only light mellowing to the spine and gilt, a bit of expert strengthening to the tips. RARE FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL CLOTH OF THIS EXTENSIVE WORK OF AFRICAN TRAVEL. Petherick was a well known Welsh traveler in East Central Africa where he had adopted the profession of mining engineer. This work describes sixteen years of his travel throughout Africa. In 1845 he entered the service of Mehemet Ali, and was employed in examining Upper Egypt, Nubia, the Red Sea coast and Kordofan in an unsuccessful search for coal. In 1848 he left the Egyptian service and established himself at El Obeid as a trader and was, at the same time made British Consul for the Sudan. In 1853 he removed to Khartoum and became an ivory trader. He traveled extensively in the Bahr-el-Ghazal region, then almost unknown, exploring the Jur, Yalo and other affluents of the Ghazal and in 1858 he penetrated the Niam-Niam country. Petherick’s additions to the knowledge of natural history were considerable, being responsible for the discovery of a number of new species. In 1859 he returned to England where he became acquainted with John Speke, then arranging for an expedition to discover the source of the Nile. While in England, Petherick married and published this account of his travels. He got the idea to join Speke in his travels, and in this volume is an actual subscription and list of subscribers to raise money to send Petherick to join Speke. His subsequent adventures as a consul in Africa were published in a later work. The first edition of this exciting volume is exceedingly rare, especially in such fine condition.

Original diagonal-ribbed green cloth, gilt-lettered spine, decorative panelling to front board in black and rear in blind, top edges untrimmed, brown coated endpapers. Housed in a custom blue cloth slipcase. Lightly rubbed, corners worn, mild bumping to top edges of boards, short closed tear to map sympathetically repaired verso. A very good copy. Lithographic folding map. First edition of "this important work" (Blackmer), uncommon in the original cloth, this copy from the celebrated travel library of Franklin Brooke-Hitching copy, with his pencilled initials to the initial blank. The Welsh traveller and trader John Petherick (1813-82) left England for Egypt and the Sudan in 1845. He initially served as a mining engineer for Muhammad Ali Pasha and later began trading in gum and ivory. In 1859 he returned to Britain and published this account of his adventures up the Nile to Kordofan and Khartoum, which also includes descriptions of ancient Egyptian antiquities, local traditions, dress, and sports, as well as several hunting trips. In the year of publication he returned to Africa to take up the role of British consul in Khartoum, and was entrusted by the Royal Geographical Society to assist Speke and Grant on their return trip from their search for the source of the Nile. Speke was long-delayed, but never forgave Petherick's failure to wait for him at their agreed rendez-vous in Gondokoro, and publicly accused him of involvement in the slave trade, an allegation "more connected with [Speke's] excessive zeal in reporting suspected slave traders to the Consul General in Egypt and then being himself accused of indulging in it" (Verdcourt), though which nevertheless resulted in Petherick's dismissal from the consulate and obscures his reputation to this. Blackmer 1295; Czech, p. 219; Hess & Coger 1495; Ibrahim-Hilmy II p. 109; see Verdcourt, "John Petherick " in The Conchologists' Newsletter, 132, pp. 453–458 (1995). Seller Inventory # 119295

After two years back in Britain during which Petherick married his wife Katherine (1827-77), the couple returned to Sudan in 1861. Petherick assumed the role of British consul in Khartoum and was entrusted by the Royal Geographic Society to assist J. H. Speke and James Grant on their return trip from their search for the source of the Nile. As part of this mission, the Pethericks travelled up the Nile to the trading station Gondokoro with boats and supplies. However, 'when Speke became well overdue, the Pethericks headed into the interior on a trading expedition Upon their return to Gondokoro, they found Speke and Grant in the company of Samuel Baker. Speke never forgave Petherick's absence, and the consul's reputation was badly tarnished' (Czech, p.129). Travels in Central Africa is based on notes, letters, and journal entries, most written by Katherine during the journey. Volume I mainly concerns the Nile journey to Gondokoro; Volume II contains numerous letters as well as details on local flora and fauna that the couple collected during their travels. With the 30 pages long publisher's catalogue at the end of Volume II. Czech p. 129: Hess & Coger 1500. Seller Inventory # 91138

Very few sets of this work are ever encountered for sale or in extant collections. ‘Petherick was a well known Welsh traveler in East Central Africa where he had adopted the profession of mining engineer. In 1845 he entered the service of Mehemet Ali, and was employed in examining Upper Egypt, Nubia, the Red Sea coast and Kordofan in an unsuccessful search for coal. In 1848 he left the Egyptian service and established himself at El Obeid as a trader and was, at the same time made British Consul for the Sudan. In 1853 he removed to Khartoum and became an ivory trader. He traveled extensively in the Bahr-el-Ghazal region, then almost unknown, exploring the Jur, Yalo and other affluents of the Ghazal and in 1858 he penetrated the Niam-Niam country. Petherick’s additions to the knowledge of natural history were considerable, being responsible for the discovery of a number of new species. In 1859 he returned to England where he became acquainted with John Speke, then arranging for an expedition to discover the source of the Nile. He returned to Sudan as consul in 1861 with his new wife by his side and was entrusted with a mission by the Royal Geographic Society to convey to Gondokoro relief stores for Captains Speke and Grant. He beat them to the meeting point and so dispatched a native force to proceed south to be in touch with the absentees. With Mrs. Petherick, he undertook another journey in the Bahr-el-Ghazal, making important collections of plants and fishes and returned in February 1863, four days after the arrival of Speke and Grant. These rare volumes describe their important expedition exploring the Nile Tributaries and describe in detail the details of the Speke controversy.’ Copies of the work are of great rarity and almost never encountered by the collector.
