Sir Richard F. Burton, The Nile Basin. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1864. iv, 195 pages. First edition in original buckram binding. Spine and corners bumped and gilt of title on spine a bit faded. Internally sound. Map. Far more obscure than the other Burton items on East Africa and the search for the Nile sources, this is in effect a bitter diatribe aimed at John Hanning Speke, and the latter portion of the book is actually a concerted attack on Speke by Burton’s ally, James M’Queen. Quite rare. $500.
