Original condition with blue wrappers, titles to front, and containing all the ads. This is a complete issue, seldom found in such good and original condition. This is a fascinating expedition report on early explorations in the Congo. Sir Harry Hamilton Johnston, one of the most popular explorers, authors and administrators of his day, penetrated alone into the Congo Basin. After travelling through southern Angola with the Earl of Mayo, Johnston continued to the Congo basin were he secured the support, and became close friends with, Henry Stanley. At that point, the Royal Society commissioned Johnston to undertake a scientific expedition to Mt. Kilimanjaro. Although Johnston would reach neither of the two peaks he would climb to over 16,00 feet along the "saddle" of the mountain which runs between Kibo and Kimawensi. He gathered a rich collection of plants and insects which were sent back to England. The expedition also achieved an unexpected but significant political result. Under the auspices of the British Agent and Vice-Consul of Zanzibar, Sir John Kirk, Johnston effected treaties with the chiefs of several local tribes to accept British protection. These treaties would later form the basis of the foundation of the British East Africa Protectorate of 1895. A Wonderful East African Expedition Report that Paved the Way for Future Africa Exploration and Discovery. Accompanied by a Lovely Colour Map of the Congo River from its Mouth to Bolobo.

About this Item: Royal Geographical Society, London, 1883. First Edition. 20 pages. Plus a fold-out colour map. Original condition with blue wrappers, titles to front, and containing all the ads. This is a complete issue, seldom found in such good and original condition. This is a fascinating expedition report on early Congo explorations. Johnston explored the River Congo from its mouth via Leopoldville up to Bolobo and carried out intensive studies on his return journey at Msuata station below the mouth of the Kwa. His work was a necessary and important supplement to Stanley's report and provides much useful information on the nature and people of the western Congo basin. Sir Harry Hamilton Johnston, was a British explorer and colonial official. His early interest in the natural sciences was combined with his concern for the political problems of colonial Africa. He began his first trip to sub-Saharan Africa in 1882 and in 1883 encountered Henry Morton Stanley in the Congo Basin. He made an expedition to Mt. Kilimanjaro that uncovered valuable scientific data and strengthened Britain's political hold in East Africa. Johnston entered the foreign service in 1885; he served in colonial administrative positions in many parts of Africa and established a British protectorate over Nyasaland (present-day Malawi). This is One of His Earliest Expedition Reports Which Gives Fascinating Insight into Early Congo Exploration and Discovery, Accompanied by a Charming Colour Map. Seller Inventory # 024533
