Travels, researches, and missionary labours - KRAPF, Rev Dr. J - 1860. [1217434]
Trubner and Co London 1860 - First edition. 8vo., li, 566pp., portrait frontispiece, 2 folding maps, 12 chromolithographed plates, contemporary half calf, rebacked and recornered, an excellent copy. 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 could not believe the idea of snow on the equator. However Krapf was correct and had seen Mounts Kilimanjaro and Kenya, the first Europeans to do so. [Attributes: First Edition]
