Krapf was the first European to see Mounts Kilimanjaro and Kenya. Important account by the German missionary who during his travels collected information from the Arab traders operating inland from the coast. From them Krapf and his companions learnt of great lakes and snow-capped mountains, which Krapf claimed to have seen for himself, much to the ridicule of English explores who, incorrectly, could not believe the idea of snow on the equator.

First edition. 8vo, li, 566 pp., portrait frontispiece (lightly spotted), 2 folding maps, 12 tinted lithograph plates, contemporary purple hard-grained morocco gilt extra, all edges gilt, upper joint rubbed, a very good copy.
