Der Kilimandjaro

Berlin: Dietrich Riemer, 1900. First. Hardcover. Riesen und Studien. 436 pp, Map, pull out folding map in rear, photo with tissue guards, text illustrations. Meyer is the first to have successfully climbed this noted mountain. His book is a landmark of African travel and mountaineering literature. This true first edition in German is beautifully produced with maps, text illustrations and full pahe ill. on extra thick paper. The entire book is printed on very thick coated stock. Bound in printed green cloth, beveled boards. Engraved bookplate of H. Debusmann. The binding is very clean and there is only slight wear at corners (unusual for this thick and heavy book). There is one slight bump on the lower front cover but it is mainly in the beveled board and no obvious until one really looks for it. Almost imperceptible and unobtrusive blindstamp of Munger Africana Library. The outside gutters and inside hinges are firm. I doubt the map has ever been taken out of the map pocket. A lovely collector item. VG+. Item #3035
