A German counterpart to Stanley's In Darkest Africa. 'A German counterpart to Stanley's In Darkest Africa, this represents Peter's journey to find Emin Pasha on the Upper Nile, but approaching from Africa's east coast... This work is wonderfully illustrated, particularly regarding the battles waged between the expedition and hostile tribes' (Czech). Peters followed Pigott in exploring the Tana River and gained notoriety by his political activities to secure influence in the interior. This roused the British, in an effort to counteract his activities, to explore both Kenya Colony and Uganda.

First English edition, royal 8vo, xviii, 597 pp., frontispiece and 32 full-page plates, illustrations in text, large coloured map (repairs to folds) in pocket at end, original green pictorial cloth gilt, occasional scattered light foxing, a very good copy.

Czech p128.
