Travels in Southern Africa [] and in the Interior Districts of Africa

London: Printed at the Minerva Press for Lane, Newman, and Co., Leadenhall-Street, 1807. Scarce Minerva Press imprint of two travel works. Curiously, apart from the Minerva title page, this volume seems identical to Volume XXII of Mavor’s Historical account of the most celebrated voyages, travels, and discoveries, from the time of Columbus to the present period . . . (1801), even containing the same pagination, printer imprint, and volume numbering.

12mo. [viii], [1]-318. Frontispiece and engravings at pgs. 93 and 265. Not in Blakey. Not is McLeod. Two copies located on Worldcat as of February 2021 (Yale and NLS).
About good in well-worn blue paper board with spine label with substantial loss, hinges loose, prior owner name to title page, some soiling and dog-eared pages, but contents generally clean. Nevertheless desirable as a very scarce item. Item #222
