Stuhlmann (1863-1928) was a German naturalist who in 1890 joined the Emin Pasha expedition. His account of the expedition is “acclaimed by some to be the finest scientific work on Africa ever published” (Howgego, Encyclopedia of Exploration IV.S81), here with the original dust-wrapper and an original letter from Emin Pasha.

Very good.
