Sir Samuel Baker
THE ALBERT N'YANZA
Great Basin of the Nile, and Explorations of the Nile Sources

Macmillan, London/New York 1892

Dark green buckram hardback with gilt titles to spine and black illustration to upper board. Illustrated with colour map and b/w full page and vignette engravings.

The discovery of the Albert N'yanza was the most remarkable feat accomplished in Baker's adventurous career; the work of Speke and Grant was thus completed, and the source of the Nile freed from mystery. Baker also discovered Murchison's Falls. On his return to England in 1865, Baker was honoured with a knighthood and awarded the gold medals of the Royal Geographical Society and the Paris Geographical Society.

Condition: Good copy. Ink name and pencil inventory remark to top of pre-title page. Occasional foxing, mailnly to prelims. Book has a slight lean forward. Inside well-preserved. Binding is still good and tight, with clean and square pages. All illustrations in good condition.
