Title: My Personal Experiences In Equatorial Africa Publisher: Sampson Low, Marston, & Company Publication Date: 1891 Binding: Hardcover Book Condition: Collectible: Very Good Edition: First Edition. Surgeon-General Thomas Heazle Parke (1857-1893) was an Irish doctor, explorer, soldier and naturalist. Parke campaigned with Henry Morton Stanley on the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition. This expedition lasted three years and many were saved from death by Parke's courage and medical skills. He was known as the 'man who had saved Stanley'. He thus became the first Irishman to cross the African continent. During the expedition Parke bought a pygmy girl. They travelled together for over a year and she nursed him through malaria. In the end he was forced to leave her behind because her eyes could not adapt to sunlight after the darkness of the forest. [Attributes: First Edition]
