BURTON, Richard First Footsteps in East Africa or An Exploration in Harar

Longmans, 1856.

First edition. Original publisher's red cloth lettered gilt to the spine and blind floral border to the covers (Penzer's secondary binding, as usual). Four chromolithograph plates and two steel engraved maps and seven steel engravings in the text. A very good copy indeed, spine slightly browned and patches of wear to the joints and corners. Internally fresh with hinges perfect.

Burton's first expedition into Somalia, made with the purpose of exploring the forbidden Moslem city of Harar.
