Cook 1884 Johnston 1884


Comparative Philology, Exploration, Imperialism, Natural History, Anthropology

    Suggests that Frederick C Cook's 'philology seems of an antiquated pattern, though his reading has been extensive' (152). Meanwhile, Henry H Johnston's narrative of his travels in Central Africa is 'heartily recommended to naturalists, anthropologists, and lovers of travel and adventure. The book is particularly well arranged, the scientific researches being mainly confined to separate chapters' (153).
