The lake regions of central Africa: a picture of exploration

London: Longman, Green, Longman, and Roberts, 1860. First edition, likely the second issue; 2 volumes, 8vo, pp. xvi, [2], 412; vi, [2], 468; engraved folding map hand colored in blue and green, 12 chromoxylographs, 22 woodcuts in the text; 20th century three-quarter green morocco, gilt-paneled spine in 6 compartments, gilt lettered direct in 3, t.e.g.; the plates all with a small and discreet stamp in the margin (not touching the image), and the map with an old paper repair at the folds on the verso; otherwise a fine copy. There were two issues, each in a different cloth binding. As the book has been rebound, we can't be sure which issue this is, except that the map is in volume II in this set, which is where it should be in the second issue. Casada 42; Penzer, p. 65-67.
