Sir Harry Johnston (1858-1927), was a British artist, explorer and colonial administrator. He was a key figure in the so-called 'Scramble for Africa', the invasion and colonisation of Africa by major European powers in the late nineteenth century. This book, first published in 1903, is Johnston's wide-ranging history of Nile exploration, beginning with the Ancient Egyptians and the Greeks and continuing into the Victorian period. As well as charting the development of ancient civilisations in the Nile region, Johnston also discusses its wider role in world history and its appeal to powerful leaders from Alexander the Great to Napoleon. As a contemporary of many significant participants in nineteenth-century Nile exploration, Johnston was perfectly situated to provide detailed insights into the personalities and achievements of explorers such as Burton, Stanley and Speke. His absorbing and accessible account provides a fascinating late Victorian perspective on the subject

The history of a slave by Harry Johnston( Book )

25 editions published between 1887 and 2012 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Harry Hamilton Johnston (1858-1927) was an explorer, colonial administrator and main participant in the British expansion in Africa, along with his friend Cecil Rhodes. Johnston published several accounts of his expeditions, as well as surveying native languages and culture. This text is Johnston's fictionalised account of the life of a slave, based on anecdotes he gathered on his travels. The protagonist describes his early life as the warrior son of the village chief in a brutal society where cannibalism and allegations of witchcraft were commonplace. When slavers attacked his village and captured him, 'Abu' faced a long journey across the country, survived by few, before serving a succession of masters. A vivid and eventful history of one man's survival through escape attempts, attacks by wild animals and relentless violence, which Johnston described as his attempt to give 'a realistic sketch of life in the Western Sudan'
