To the Victoria Falls of the Zambesi

Nature volume 13, page 384 | Download Citation



IN noticing the German edition of this work (NATURE, vol. xii. p. 231) we said that it was well worth translating into English, and we are therefore glad to see that Messrs. Low and Co. have put it within reach of the English reading public. The work is full of interest, and is a really valuable contribution to our knowledge of the region traversed—from D'Urban to the Victoria Falls of the Zambesi. Mr. D'Anvers has done his work of translating very satisfactorily, judiciously omitting a few passages which deal with matter already brought before English readers. All the original illustrations seem to have been retained, including the brilliant but tasteful chromo-lithographs. A new route-map, on a larger scale than the one in the German edition, has been constructed for this translation.
