The Book of the Month. With Emin in Equatoria. By Major Casati
Regular Feature, Abstract
Exploration, Imperialism, Botany, Mapping
Contends that Gaetano Casati's book is superior to Henry M Stanley's account of the same events in Central Africa, because the latter 'is an explorer [...] and not a scientist, while the Major is both'. In Africa Casati gave Emin Pasha 'great assistance with the flora and the fauna', and the colour maps and illustrations in his book 'are extremely interesting both from a scientific and from a general point of view'.
