Narrative of Travels and Discoveries in Northern and Central Africa, in the Years 1822, 1823, and 1824 ... Extending across the Great Desert to the Tenth Degree of Northern Latitude, and from Kouka in Bornou, to Sackatoo, the Capital of the Fellatah Empire. London, John Murray, 1826.

Contemporary mottled calf, gilt dentelles and richly gilt spine, expertly rebacked. A beautiful copy. First edition.Denham and Clapperton travelled across the great Sahara Desert starting out from near Tripoli and arriving at Mourzuk in south-western Libya. They were the first Europeans to discover Lake Chad in February 1823. Clapperton and Dr Walter Oudney parted company with Denham to continue westward, reaching Kuka in Bornu Empire (Nigeria) to explore the course of the Niger River. Denham made several attempts to go around Lake Chad but failed due to lack of security in the area. This work is based upon Denham's journal with a report by Dr. Oudney on the excursion to the mountains west of Mourzuk. The last part by Clapperton, reports on his westward journey which includes an account of Oudney's death. The beautiful engravings by Edward Finden are after drawings by Denham. Gay 337.
