Sir William Garstin, writing the the Journal of the R.G.S. said of the expedition "The main facts regarding the Sources of the Nile were finally revealed by him, and nothing was left for future explorer’s but to fill in details". The Rear Column had been beset with difficulties waiting for the return of Stanley’s Advance Column. With the death of Major Bartelot and Jameson, and various desertions, Rose Troup decided to go back to England. Stanley’s public criticism of his rear column spurred Troup into print to give his version of events. Because of the contract he signed at the start of the expedition, Stanley took out injunction to supress the book. Troup counter sued, alleging breach of contract, "he never supplied me with the tent, bed, Winchester rifle canteen, and a due share of European provisions. Mr Stanley’s failure to fulfil his contract appeared to me to nullify it,". The case was settled out of court and Troup, after an agreed delay, published his book. Has light shelfwear and separating at hinges. Otherwise nice copy with minimal markings. Bookseller Inventory # 005648
