Story of the Rear Column
1890 - of the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition.First edition. Portrait frontispiece, & 2 folding coloured maps, with numerous plates & illustrations in the text. 8vo. Original cloth, gilt. xxxii, [1], 455pp. London, R.H. Porter, Jameson was the naturalist on Stanley's ill-fated expedition to rescue Emin Pasha. He did not return and this volume (from letters and diaries) was prepared for publication by his wife.The work includes an account of Jameson's supposed purchase of a ten year old girl so as to witness her death and subsequent consumption by cannibals. The story was corroborated by William Bonny, the rear column's medic, and believed by Stanley, who denounced Jameson in letters to the Times. Jameson recounts the event as a horrified bystander as opposed to an instigator.
