In generally good condition, the pages slightly tanned at edges. A collection of papers on natural history, geography and allied subjects; authors include H. Pick, H.W. Reichardt, A. Vogl and J.

The most significant paper is that of Theodor Kotschy Der Nil, seine Quellen, ZuflŸsse, seine LŠnder und deren Bewohner (the Nile, its sources, tributories, territories and their inhabitants) which includes a fold-out map covering much of East Afrrica from 32 deg. N. to 8 deg. S. and from 43 deg. to 61 deg. E. titled Der Nil mit seine Quellen und NebenflŸssen 1866 and with extremely inaccurate depictions of Lake Victoria (Nyansa See) and Lake Edward (Luta N'sige S.). 422 pp., map (facing p. 235), 4 figs. (at end), two of which appear to have been printed by an early cyanotype method with the image composed of a series of blue lines.
