Untitled [Relief Of Emin Pacha] : Wallis Gimson & Co.

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Plate to commemorate the relief expedition for Emin Pasha (Dr Emin Bey) in the upper reaches of the Nile, by Henry Morton Stanley's party. Emin Pasha was General Gordon's Governor-General in the Egyptian Equatorial Provinces and was apparently besieged by Mahdists. Stanley worked for the King of Belgium. When Stanley and Pasha at last met, it became clear that the latter wished to stay in the provinces, while Stanley was determined to get him out! This is a complex geopolitical story spanning Britain, Belgium and the Ottoman Empire and involving strong personalities. The new owner of this c.1887 plate will without doubt be inspired toward further reading and research of the journey and events whose conclusion was to be some years later.
