Le Congo.
0. 1883.

Printed in an edition of 500 copies. Apparently the first edition in French. Even the publisher is unsure to whom to attribute the work: although the title-page names the author as Philippe Pigafetta (translated by Leon Cahun), the spine gives Ed. Lopez as author, rather than as principle source. Rare.
