TWO KINGS OF UGANDA, or Life by the Shores of Victoria Nyanza. Being an Account of a Residence of Six Years in Eastern Equatorial Africa

(London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington, 1890).

A SCARCE WORK BY AN AUTHORITY ON THE EARLY UGANDAN STATE IN DECORATED CLOTH. Rev. Robert P. Ashe spent several years of his life doing missionary work in Uganda as it was forming into a British state. He is best known for CHRONICLES OF UGANDA, which he wrote four years after this text was published and was considered the major source book for the state of Uganda at the time. This book begins his study on Uganda with its account of his travels there, relating in great detail his travel experiences particularly in the royal courts of Uganda. In the preface of this second edition, the author pays loving tribute to Alexander M. Mackay, a missionary who plays a prominent role in the textual narrative and who died a few months after the first edition was published. A handsome copy of this exciting and comprehensive narrative.
