Description du livre London Hurst and Blackett, Limited 1901, 1901. Scarce First edition. With a fine colour frontispiece, a profuse number of black and white illustrations from photographs and sketches by the author (a number folding panorama style), 2 maps (one folding) in black and white, and 1 large folding map in colour. 8vo, original publisher’s green cloth lettered in gilt on the spine, pictorially decorated in black on the upper cover, t.e.g. xvi, 350, folding map,4 pp of ads. A handsome copy of this scarce book, with only light aging to the edges of the cloth, the interior very clean and fresh. Christmas 1904 presentation and contemporary news clipping concerning the conquest of the Mountains of the Moon neatly affixed to the front endleaves. A very scarce and important work, seldom encountered, ESPECIALLY SO IN SUCH NICE CONDITION. An important work in the history of written Africana, extensively illustrated and narrated in engaging descriptive detail. This well written account of the Tanganyika Expedition has taken its place amongst the works fundamental to a collection of Central Africana. Ever since Speke had first visited the shores of the great lake during Burton’s expedition to the region at the source of the Nile, the British had been seeking ever more information as to an exact geographical understanding of the area and the lakes that lay within it. Perplexing problems of the fauna and flora remained unanswered and with them, full knowledge as to the course of the waters throughout the Nile region. Part of Moore’s quest was to answer many of those questions. And in that pursuit he crossed lands still unseen by any explorers and found evidence of fauna, especially in the lakes themselves which led him to the surprising answers to many of the most perplexing scientific questions. Throughout its journey, the Expedition was able to glean information which was to completely alter the held views respecting the past history of this particular part of the earth. Moore relates at length much of his work on the very wide geographical changes which had ocurred and were still occuring among the lakes and watersheds, owing to the persistence of the geographical disturbances which had formed among other things the modern active volcanoes north of Kivu.
