Mungo Park - Part V

In part III I discussed an 1800 French edition of Mungo Park's Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa. Here is another from 1835. This is volume 25 of the 40+ volume Bibliothèque Universelle des Voyages with Vie de Mungo-Park (Paris: Armand-Aubrée). There are also short tales of three other African explorers.

This copy has managed to retain the original wrappers.
