Good original cloth, apart from a small hole affecting the spine of vol 1. xv, 304; xi, 315pp. London, Duncan served on the disastrous 1841 Niger expedition which resulted in a tremendous loss of life. He returned to that part of the world just three years later on this expedition to locate the Kong Mountains. This second expedition was almost as ill-fated as the first as Duncan soon ran out of money and as such was forced to rely on the notorious King Gezo for help. The map depicts Duncan's route from Whydah to Adafoodia. Cardinall, 526.
