Afrikana book. "From Hausaland to Egypt" by Karl Kumm.

Hard cover book in fair condition, there is wear and tear. Published in 1910 by Constable & Co London. A first edition of a special book dedicated to David Livingstone. Kumm was a founder of the Sudan Pioneering Mission and was married to Lucy Guinness. He went into Service in Upper Egypt in 1900 which put him in a position to carry out his explorations. Nicely illustrated including six coloured plates of butterflies and with a large fold map at rear showing Dr Kumm’s travels right across Africa. Packed with details and adventure and nicely illustrated from photographs. Closing chapters and appendices are of particular note covering the “Anthropology of the Sudan Tribe”, some interest vocabularies, meteorological observations, zoological specimens from the expedition and a good accounting of money spent on provisions! Good account right across Africa - special illustrations 324 Pages
