Book Condition: Near Fine
Edition: Second Edition
Publisher: London: James Nisbet & Co., 1949.
A charming second edition in nearly fine condition. The fabric of the spine has worn down noticeably, while there is sunning to the pages and a small area of foxing toward the outer pages as well. Otherwise this volume is very well preserved.
This Chapter from the Story of Missions in Central Africa is deemed as much important for its description of the early missions of discovery through Sudan, Borneo and The Sahara, as historical for its letters from locals and documents of Africa in the 18th century; B&W lithographs; 8vo; 154 pages.
