Item Description: Cambridge Library Collection, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.After serving in the Royal Navy in Canada, Hugh Clapperton (1788-1827) participated in two expeditions to the interior of Africa. Richard Lander (1804-34), a young Cornishman who had travelled widely in the service of previous employers, applied to accompany him on the second expedition, during which Clapperton died. Lander published this edition of Clapperton s journal in 1829; an expanded version (also available in this series) appeared the following year. Clapperton s account of his experiences is informal, lively and vivid, describing hospitality and annoyances, discomforts and pleasures. Although its language and attitudes are typical of the early colonial period, it remains a valuable source for West African history. The book also contains a short biography of Clapperton, Lander s emotional account of his master s illness and death, and his journal of his lonely return journey. The appendix includes meteorological observations, notes on Arabic documents, and Yoruba vocabulary. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781108084888
