STANLEY, HENRY M. In Darkest Africa, New York: Scribner's, 1891. Octavo, early printing (first was 1890), pp. xiv, 547; xvi, 540, original green cloth boards with gilt lettering and bust on spines, green and black stamped map of the Dark Continent on front with gilt stamped lettering and signature, 3 folding maps in two rear pockets, illustrated plates. Paginates perfectly but the map index of v2 calls for a sketch map facing page 334 that is lacking. The fact that the book paginates correctly leads me to believe the map was laid in or never existed in this edition. This book recounts Stanley's rescue of the Emin Pasha in the lower Sudan (the pasha didn't seem to feel the need for a rescue, but never mind) and discoveries made on the journey. Condition: Boards rubbed and worn at edges with some loss at spine ends, hinges cracked. Leaves age-toning but very good, folding maps have few short tears at creases, delicate but very good.
