Henry Morton Stanley was a Welsh explorer of Central Africa in modern day Congo. He famously led an expedition funded by the New York Herald to locate the lost Scottish missionary David Livingstone. He also would lead later expeditions in search of the Nile's source as well as the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition.

Stanley is a major figure in the exploration and mapping of the African interior which prior to him was explored very poorly. This edition features a large foldout map of Stanley's travels in Central Africa.

This 1890 edition by Augustus Feather displays brilliant chromolithograph pictures of Stanley's adventures in Central Africa, describing local fauna, landscapes and ethnology. Illustrated by 1 folding map and 116 illustrations: 8 full color plates; 31 two-color; 77 black and white mixture of full and in text (collated).

Original green pictorial cloth cover with embossed illustrations. 8vo. pp. xx, map, 17-533
