Dealer Notes
With the revision and co-operation of Henry M. Stanley. First edition.
The author was part of the Emin Pasha relief expedition, led by Henry Morton Stanley, which was sent to rescue Emin Pasha, the German-born Eduard Schnitzer (1840-1892), governor of Equatoria, Southern Sudan, who had been caught up in the Mahdists revolt. The expedition took a route up the Congo River and then through the Ituri Forest, an extraordinarily difficult route that resulted in the loss of two-thirds of the expedition, however, it did result in the rescue of the governor.
