A propos de cet article

408pp., color frontispiece from a painting by A. Fitzgerald, 28 fine photographic illustrations (complete) on heavy stock, many monochrome photo illustrations, 5 folding maps, 3 very fine long foldout photo panoramas by expedition member Vittorio Sell. Top edge gilt. This is a very scarce work of Africana. The mountain range of Ruwenzori is believed to be the mythical mountains of the Moon referred to by Ptolemy. Located in central Africa, these snowy mountains drain into the lakes that feed the Nile making them the true source of the great river. Perpetually shrouded in mists, Stanley and other explorers thought upon first sight of the mountains that they were simply a trick of the eye. Many explorers had tried to ascend these peaks but had never succeeded. The Duke's expedition was the first to truly explore and document the range after nearly half a century of speculation, setting in place the final piece of the Nile puzzle. This successful expedition climbed all the major mountain peaks. Tight with light foxing and minimal markings. N° de réf. du libraire 005643
