A beautifully bound example. The result of Casati's 10-year exploration of the Bahr-el-Ghazal basin in southern Sudan, full of valuable scientific data regarding the flora and fauna of the region.

The Italian explorer Gaetano Casati's (1838-1902) account of his adventures in southern Sudan; he set out for Sudan in 1879 at the request of the Milanese geographical journal L'Esploratore. An early European visitor to Azande and Mangbetu lands, Casati's account greatly expanded contemporary European geographic and ethnographic knowledge of equatorial Africa. However, Ten Years in Equatoria also includes Casati's reflections on various political conflicts, including Emin Pasha's battle against Mahdist forces in Lado and Casati's own run-in with King Kabarega of Unyoro.
