Narrative of an expedition to explore the River Zaire, usually called the Congo, in South Africa, in 1816 by James Hingston Tuckey( Book )

2 editions published in 1818 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1816, an expedition to Africa, commanded by Captain James Tuckey (1776-1816), set out on HMS Congo, accompanied by the storeship Dorothy. The aim was to discover more about African geography - of which relatively little was then known - and in particular the connection between the River Congo, also known as the Zaire, and the Niger Basin. The mission failed when eighteen crew members, including Tuckey, died from virulent fevers and attacks by hostile natives. However, the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty gave permission for publication of Tuckey's notes, and those of his Norwegian botanist Christen Smith (1785-1816), who also died during the voyage. First published in 1818, the work comprises their narratives of the doomed expedition. At the time it aroused Western interest in Africa, encouraging further research, and it remains of interest to geographers, botanists and scholars of African studies today

Narrative of travels and discoveries in Northern and Central Africa : in the years 1822, 1823, and 1824 by Dixon Denham( Book )

3 editions published in 1826 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Major Dixon Denham (1786-1828) and Lieutenant Hugh Clapperton (1788-1827) were British explorers famous for their explorations in Africa. Between 1822 and 1825, they set out to investigate the lower course of the River Niger and the swamps and forests of the Guinea Coast, accompanied by the physician Dr Walter Oudney (1790-1824), who sadly died of a fever during the expedition. This important book, first published in 1826, brings together the memoirs of all three explorers to document their mission, which represented the first complete crossing of the Sahara by Europeans in recorded history. Diverse and insightful, it recounts phenomena such as the transportation of slaves from the Sudan, the salt industry in the heart of the desert, and encounters with native tribes. Providing unique insights into pre-colonial Africa, these vivid recollections remain of great interest to historians of Africa, cultural anthropologists and geographers alike

Geology and mineralogy considered with reference to natural theology by William Buckland( Book )

5 editions published between 1858 and 1869 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classic geological and palaeontological textbook, from William Buckland, the first professor for Geology in Oxford and this is the first American edition which had a great influence in the US! Buckland's importance lay "in helping to redefine the nature and method of a geological explanation. Buckland and other geologists wished to produce detailed explanations that would in effect constitute a geological history, period by period, of the events of a given locality. Buckland was thus one of the men, perhaps the ablest and probably the most acute, who built a typically "British" geology, based on careful local stratigraphy and local dynamic explanations but revivified by the addition of fossil evidence". - DSB II, p.567-68
