Records of the African Association 1788 - 1831

£19.99

Product description

The Association for promoting the Discovery of the Interior Parts of Africa, whose history forms the subject of this book, was founded in 1788. In 1831 it was incorporated in the Royal Geographical Society, founded in the previous year. This merger not only linked the Society lineally with a private British association which played the leading part in the opening phase of the modern exploration of Africa but provided the Society with one of its most important fields of activity, apart from the polar regions.
This book gives the history of the Association derived from the original Minute Books found in the University Library, Cambridge and includes 2 foldout maps.
