STANLEY'S EMIN PASHA EXPEDITION

(London: John C. Nimmo, 1890).

RARE FIRST EDITION IN ESPECIALLY FINE CONDITION. "Who should be found competent to conduct a caravan made up of numerous and promiscous followers, equally ready to quarrel with nature and with their fellows, yet indispensable for the conveyance along that weary route of the double cargo of victuals, ammunition and supplies?"
"The answer was forthcoming. Then it was that for the fifth time Central Africa was to behold the hero, at once the discoverer and deliverer of Livingstone. Stanley was ready for the task....It is the history of this ever memorable expedition and of the dramatic events that led up to it, together with the important geographical discoveries resulting from it, that forms the subject of the ensuing pages."
