Description


Excerpt from The Great Rift Valley: Being the Narrative of a Journey to Mount Kenya and Lake Baringo; With Some Account of the Geology, Natural History, Anthropology and Future Prospects of British East Africa

Dr. H. R. Mill has remarked (knowledge, Jan. 1896, p. 2) that in pioneer exploration England has led the way, but that in scientific geography we have always been beaten by our German rivals. The history of the exploration of Equatorial Africa is one to which Englishmen can look back with feelings of such just pride, that we may ungrudgingly admit the superiority of German scientific work in this region.
