O'HANLON, REDMOND - Congo Journey

London, Hamish Hamilton. 1996. (ISBN: 0241127688). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A near Fine unmarked copy with no inscriptions (Fine apart from some light foxing to top and fore edges) with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 472 pages. 23 illustrations. 3 maps. Ostensibly a quest for Mokele-mbembe, the Congo dinosaur (whose secret becomes clear), this story of travel through the jungles and swamp forests of the northern Congo is Tolstoyan in its depth, scope and range of characters, and as vivid as Nabokov in its image and detail. A portrait of a country, it is alive with natural history, it is a search for the meaning of sorcery, the purpose of religion (and a celebration of the comfort and mysteries of science), it is also an adventure told with great narrative force. Of course there is a darker side to the Congo, and that too is recorded here. PLEASE NOTE: A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.85 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST 174. Near Fine/Fine.
