Abstract:

Juan Maria Schuver was born to a wealthy Amsterdam business family in the mid-nineteenth century. Established young as a travel writer and reporter, he decided to embark on scientific exploration.

Schuver had planned books both in English and in French on his explorations in the country 'Between Two Niles'. The only version which saw publication was an edited German translation, prepared by Petermann's Mitteilungen as a special issue in 1883. A combination of chance, the present editors' interest in the region, and the collaboration of the Schuver family led to the re-discovery of the original manuscripts.

The present volume offers the full English accounts supplemented by passages from the author's french revisions, and also draws on other drafts and letters, to give for the first time a full picture of Schuver's African travels.
